It's time for the Geldof family to walk away from the media and the public eye, that has laid waste their beloved and their dreams and left them with broken hearts. Celebrity is a modern disease perversely sought after by the young, whose lives and aspirations are honed well by the money makers, only to be discarded when they have outlived their usefulness. The X factor has become the most abusive example of this and should be removed from our screens. Watching the judges crocodile tears as they boost egos, only later to obliterate them, is nauseating. The riches of life and the greatest success is to walk down a street and not be recognised, is to sing in the park and have the birds alone as your audience, is to live unvaunted among the everyday mundanities of this glorious existence. I wish the Geldof family the salvation of ordinariness.
