Eurovision - We was robbed (as usual)



Last night was the Eurovision Song Contest.  A four hour show that overran as usual, ending at 12.15am in the UK.

So first off, congratulations to those of you who stayed with the show, here in London City for the full endurance.

Congratulations to the Netherlands, and Duncan Laurence for winning Eurovision 2019.

Commiserations to the UK and Michael Rice, who came last, as once again the usual two-fingers up to the Brits from the people on the continent prevailed.

If anyone deserved to come last, it was probably Madonna, for her astonishing 2 song act at half time.

Her live rendition of Like A Prayer, was an absolute shocker.  In the past she has been accused of miming, but this flat and wobbly performance was most definitely live.  We could tell!

Her second song had the auto-tune set at eleven, but even that could not save her.

Eurovision is a camp night out, a laugh not to be taken seriously.  It is however a trifle irksome that no matter what entry the UK sends to the show, for many years now, we come last, or just one up from the very bottom.

For the vengeful of you in the audience, remember there is a vote on this whole sorry mess, with the European elections this coming Thursday!
