Eurovision Song Contest

I presume that the reason UK are doing rubbish can be directly attributed to the ECF's introduction of a universal membership scheme? :lol:

Sean,

The real reason is we had the wrong representative.

It should have been http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECTvLq1DvWU :lol:

I'm getting to like this song for some strange reason.

Norway nil, England one - Roy had Engelbert pencilled in as the lone man up front, but had to cross him out and replace him with big Andy (not Williams) when he found out that Humperdinck had gone to the Euros early, all by himself.

A new format is needed in which the jury simply votes on a list of countries.

No unpleasant songs should be performed and much less time is wasted.

Bring back Katie Boyle as multi-lingual presenter and vote on the name of country.

Remove all non-European countries, i.e. invoke reasonable entry criteria.
