The difference between this election and the last; the outcome wasn’t known before we all started. Last night was eurovision, a great way to confirm that the rest of Europe is bonkers, and nobody likes us (or is it our songs are never any good anymore?).
I’m quite disappointed Norway didn’t win, with WigWam, who are basically the Norwegian version of darkness, the probily lost out because of there lack of kettle drums. Ruth refused to believe that the Moldavian entry’s words “Granma Bangs the drum, with the big mallet from the house” didn’t have some other meaning, but they did have an old woman in a rocking chair with a drum, so I think that they are just bonkers.
granma nearly won
the only downside to eurovision is the voting now takes longer than the songs, I think 39 countries got to vote on the 24 songs. This does give Terry the opportunity to have ago at our European neighbours, which is all part of the fun. If we want people to get interested in Europe maybe we should let Terry have a weekly 30minute show where he rounds up the goings on and voting in the European parliament.
I don’t think we are ever going to win the contest again, since it went to ‘televoting’, all the Scandinavian countries vote for each other,all the Baltic countries vote for each other, and all the Balkan countries vote for each other, while if were lucky the Irish vote for us. (look at the voting)
I’m beginning to come around the to Tory view point, we need to let panels vote, because the common people can’t be trusted.
