It’s that time of year again, yes folks break out the glam, glitter and your A-Z of Europe, you know the one that inexplicably also includes Israel. Yes the biggest political event of the year is here – forget the Crewe and Nantwhich by-election or the race for the US Democratic leadership Eurovision is where it’s all at. No 10% tax cut ever got as many people talking as the most rigged, most corrupt and most deliciously funny music contest in the world.
If you loathe it stop reading now, go on off with you… go moan that they postponed Doctor Who in the corner of you very lonely bedroom… it’s only a TV show after all! But Eurovision… why it’s so big that they couldn’t even fit it into one show this year! Which is a great shame because half of the fun is sitting open mouthed at the truly incomprehensible acts from all those tiny Baltic countries that you never heard of before, like Maskirova and … well you know the other ones! Personally I’m still in awe of the cyber-punk meets goth meets euro-trance that Greece entered a few years back titled “Passport”
I plan to tune in on saturday night – infact were having a Eurovison party complete with Ra Ra skirts and frilly shirts… please feel free to pop around if you have killer legs! This is a telly event to be taken tongue firmly placed in cheek, and that’s what we intend to do…
