We Was Robbed!




British entry SuRie, sang like a German band in a performance that was exciting for all the wrong reasons.  In the last minute of her song, what police describe as "a European citizen but not British", ran on to the stage snatching the singers microphone and appeared to shout, "Nazis of the UK media, we demand freedom."

Apparently, this as yet unnamed scumbag, also invaded the stage in three similar incidents during the National Television awards, The Stephen Noland show and the final of last year's, The Voice.

Someone really should get his name and stop inviting him to these functions.

Although our entry was probably not the winning number of the night, it deserved to do a little better than it did, ending in 24th place, beating just Finland and Portugal.  To put this into perspective when  Bonnie Tyler represented us we came 19th, and with Engelbert we came 25th of 26.

Eurovision ceased to be anything about music a very long time ago. In fact a dreadful entry from Israel featuring an overweight Chinese lady at a Takeaway, scooped top prize by winning  the so-called popular vote, having been in an obscure place on the leader board only moments before.

We are used to losing this contest, and in recent years the BBC has twice played canned cheering when our contestants take to the stage to drown out the booing in the auditorium.  So although we never expect to win due to political reasons (ie the rest of EU not liking us for Brexit), we always have fun at this event and the indignation we suffer each year, is actually just part of the cabaret that is Eurovision.

We had a terrific evening in London City, enjoying old Eurovision acts Brotherhood of Man and Bonnie Tyler during the intermission as we collectively watched the Live show, whilst sucking our teeth.  Hope you enjoyed it too!
