Simon Cowell The Politician?

Simon Cowell may be pursuing other areas of interest outside of the showbiz world. He’s reportedly been so inspired by the U.S. election that he wants to change the way British politics is covered.

He says he’s determined to create a TV show to help revitalize Britain’s lackluster political culture and lure in a whole new generation of voters.

He says, "There wasn't one second of (the U.S. election campaign) where I wasn't completely riveted. Then you look at the way British politics is covered. Those tedious party conferences and the long-winded dronings-on. It's just not entertaining. I would love to bring the concept of the American presidential debate to Britain. I know I could engage the audience, get people involved. Make it interesting. The public should be involved. Politics is show business these days. More and more so."

And Cowell insists he would be the perfect choice to produce such a show - because he does not get involved in the voting process himself. He adds, "I've never voted, which gives me the perfect credentials for doing a show like that as I would be completely unbiased."

Well, he does have a point! Do you think it could work?
