|ITV to Make “Who Wants to be a Political Assassin” Following Result of “Vote for Me” - January 25th 2005|
ITV has announced its plans to commission a new, controversial series called “Who wants to be a Political Assassin.” The series comes hot on the heels of its previous politics orientated reality show “Vote for Me.”
“Vote for Me,” which concluded earlier this year, was a reality TV show similar in vein to Pop Idol, however instead of launching a career as a Pop Star, the winner would stand as an independent MP at the next General Election.
ITV had hoped that after it successfully manufactured Number 1 hits from its various Pop Idol winners it could manufacturer a majority in the House of Commons and thus form Government with its sole ‘Vote for Me’ winner.
Unfortunately, the corporation’s plan fell apart when Rodney Hylton-Potts won the final vote.
Rodney Hylton-Potts claims he won the Vote for Me competition because his hard-line stance on immigrants. He stated that all immigrants (and their descendants) should all be deported, and that this was what the British people wanted. Further analysis of the result revealed the real reason he got voted in was because he planned to start with Michael Howard.
Although ITV has not stated it is unhappy with the result, it is widely believed that Mr Hylton-Potts was not the character they were hoping to come up with. Described by Random Perspective Editor as “The Biggest Satirist’s Gold Mine Since George W Bush and the Weapon’s of Mass Destruction” it is claimed that any person with intelligence would rather elect Iain Duncan Smith’s hairdresser into power.
The suspicion about ITV’s dissatisfaction with the result was heightened when it announced “Who wants to be a Politican Assassin.” ITV has constantly claimed that the winner of the show will not actually have to assassinate a politician although every spokesperson for the company developed a headache and had to terminate the press conference when asked whether they counted “Reality TV Politicians” in that bracket.
