No-one ever changed the world by watching X Factor

Yesterday evening, my sister-in-law arrived collecting bits for children living on the streets. By kids, I mean teenagers, many still at school, and by bits, I mean food, basic cosmetics and the necessary to survive a night in the cold. Then on the TV comes X Factor.
