Is it time to leave the Eurovision Song contest and endeavour to leave with some dignity, or are we to continue to suffer the humiliation of coming last with nil points from both the jury and the public vote for ever.
I know the programme is exceedingly popular amongst the gay community who arrange special Eurovision party nights with drinks and nibbles and the like and really get into the serious business of screaming at the television for the evening, but I have to say it’s not for me.
Now, I don’t want to sound like Mr Donald Trump, an embittered man if ever I saw one, but in this case I would suggest the vote was indeed rigged, so much so that we will never be able to get close to winning ever again, whilst there are so many countries who don’t like the British.
Obviously I haven’t watched it for some considerable years, probably since the days of Bucks Fizz when we actually won but it is definitely time to pack up our toys and leave the playground.
From what I can gather the Europeans don’t like us and there is some spat going on with the Eastern Europeans who don’t like the folk from the Balkans, or something like that and I have no idea whether the Russians even take part, but I’m fairly certain they along with Israel who won some time ago are not even in Europe.
We can do better than this, walk away, walk away I say, turn our backs on the façade that pretends to be a song competition called Eurovision, walk with dignity and never look back.
