    Default Eurovision 2022!

    I just thought I'd mention Eurovision 2022 as nobody else has.

    Personally, I think it's just a talent-free commercial money spinner with appeal only to the kids, grannies and the clueless .

    Well I watched, always good for a laugh with Graham Norton’s quips, although was of course better when the legendary Sir Terry Wogan was doing it. My favourite was the German entry- it came last!

    I thought it was just a means for member countries to air their grievances. A bit like company Christmas piss-ups. And rather political too. I didn't see it, so can't comment on the winning song, but no doubt it was a belter.

    Forget the past, it's gone. And don't worry about the future, it doesn't exist. There is only NOW.

    its always a vote to a country the world feels sorry for or want to show support to, and a vote against the country you hate most. thats why uk usually comes about last

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    Then I saw it. I saw a mum who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    But UK have only had two "Null Point" years in Eurovision's sixty year history (2003, 2021). Norway have had four, what did they ever do to anyone?
