I TS great that any participant who has a special condition, but a real talent, can receive the same break to fame. Nobody should be excluded if they could do well. Britains Got Talent and X Factor are great entertainment, as long as they are fair. Mary H, Hackney WELL done X Factor for not dis- criminating against people who might be feeling the pressure. Theyre including people like Scott James who has Aspergers syndrome and saying its his choice as to whether he can cope. I Frater, London IF ThE show wasnt picking out aver- age singers just because they have a gimmick, the producers wouldnt have to hire psychologists for this years series. People who have lost close family members are vulnerable. They shouldnt be made to sing songs with them in mind, as has apparently happened in the past. Lewis, Hornsey IF YOU asked them today Im sure hollie Steel and Susan Boyle wouldnt care about the pressure they were under. Thanks to going on Britains Got Talent they had an unbelievable opportunity and Im sure they will look back on it as an experience they will never forget. Gemma, Balham ALLOWING someone of fragile mental health to expose themselves to extreme and immediate media attention is hugely irresponsible. If Butlins! If they cant stand the pres- sure they shouldnt be on the show. Linda J, SG2 IF ThE audience wasnt built up into such a frenzy on the night it might make things a bit easier for all the contestants, whether they have issues or not. hysterical crowd reactions cant help them relax! Debz, Muswell Hill COWELL and the other BGT j ud g e s a re being bullied. They did noth- ing wrong with SuBo -- how were they to know shed be so popular? H Casey, Canada Water the mental flaw was related to violence, addiction or schizophrenia would they be up there? These peo- ple have high-pro- file sob stories to attract teen view- ers, but the policy is at best short- sighted and at wo r s t cy n i c a l exploitation of the vulnerable. Shame o n t h i s f r e a k show. David, London ThIS is a televised competition to win a 1m record- ing contract. Its not a karaoke competition at Dont let TV stress ruin their chances Pressure: Susan Boyle broke down after Britains Got Talent Would Britney beat Sarah Palin? ID vote for Britney Spears, pictured, for US president. I liked her joke manifesto. Not so sure about P Diddy as vice- president. Whats his health policy? Terry, London WHEN Britney gave us her view on Iraq, Ive never heard anything so daft. But I guess Sarah Palin wouldnt be much better. Quicky, London SHE couldnt do much worse than they have now. She just needs to sign away billions of dollars and run the US into bankruptcy. Sarah, Aldwych BRITNEY is really quite funny. I saw her on How I Met Your Mother and she was hilarious! A Holden, north London SHE wants to be like Paris Hilton. She just gets in the papers by wearing a bikini. Nadia, London Its ironic that Katie Price, aka Jordan, took her friends and new boyfriend to watch the musical Priscilla Queen Of the Desert (Lite, Wed). she seems to look more like a drag queen every day. Attia, London NOel and liam Gallagher claim they never speak but they can clearly put up with each other for the money and touring. Pathetic. I mean really, Oasis -- a mediocre band and a one-album wonder. Anthony, London And another thing...

Not complaining, BR3 FeD uP (Txts, Mon): an ex who worked at a sandwich chain called himself a sandwich artist!

Becca, N15 DIaMONDs (Txts, Wed): project managers are wonderful. the only reason youd think we are bean- counting bullies is if your company was too cheap to hire a good one!
