    Eurovision

    Something I've been tuning into since Puppet On A String days.It's a display of campness unparalleled by anything else on the box.You can usually expect some country coming up with something outrageous.Most of the tunes will be dire, some will be quite catchy.You can really on the block votes,politically biased towards someone or other.I'm expecting the British entry to be nationalistic to the max,plenty of union jacks etc.I doubt this will go down well with the rest of Europe.I hope Isreal get the reception they diserve,and it will stretch on and on.Anyway will anyone else be tuning in?

    They've only gone and done it..

    I'm watching. Post Brexit vote this could be a laugh.

    I'm expecting a lot of "Breetun... null pwa"

    Also, in amongst the pish ballads there's always some nutter from Eastern Europe doing something that sounds like Devo while riding a unicycle.

    It was probably the noise from the $#@!ey song? They thought people were booing, in fact that was the chorus.

    Is it over yet?

    To be fair I used to like it before it got political, or I noticed it was political!

    It now seems to be some paragon of diversity. I'd suggest it's nothing of the kind and does not a lot to represent European, or a few other random, cultures.

    Sham.
