When a commentator such as Terry Wogan can practically predict outcome of voting based on who are neighbouring countries to vote giver, you immediately know that something is wrong. Also, did anyone notice that Britain's entry was more Turkish in sound than Turkish entry?.
Russia, France, Greece, Hungary, Turkey and UK all had quite reasonable and catchy songs with good presentation. However, voting of our new neighbours in Europe leaves a bad taste in mouth. Almost to a man they voted with their neighbours in order to maximise their winning potential and score levels. The whole escapade was as embarassing as it was predictable.
No, I cannot and will not bring myself to watch another Eurovision Song Contest. Good though he may be, even Terry Wogan has overstayed his welcome. Its time we collectively snubbed this farce and moved on.
Dogged by political symbolism and ruined by vote rigging controversy, this is one awful singing tournament that has become a world embarassment. We should get out now and leave this camp, flamboyant, kiss my ass contest to East Europeans and Greek and Cyprus.
