It's time for the BEEB to give up on this farce every year and save the licence payers money for better things, decent UK drama for instance not yankee rubbish or failing that bring back Wogan, Norton is hopeless..
The voting is so politically biased that it is a joke, Greece will vote for Cyprus and Cyprus for Greece neither will vote for Tukey, etc. All the ex-USSR countries voted for mother Russia and ex Yugoslav countries voted for each other, etc. The UK has waged war with probably everyone in Europe in our history so we shouldn't expect any thing else. Sweden won not because of the song and it was awful, but there was much worse, but because Sweden hasn't offended anybody.
The up side to losing is that we don't have to host it, thank goodness. It was reported that the Spanish singer was under instruction not to win as they couldn't afford to host it if they did win.
Good on you Russian Grannies they should have won, at least Englebert had some eye candy.
