    We should go back to our traditional roots like a lot of the eastern countries do. Get some druids in and do a Stonehenge themed sacrifice or something.

    @Lukus yeah, some dwarves too, just in case they trample on the set.

    Tradional druidic chanting BUT with Tom Zanetti providing a Balearic beats on the decks.

    Just do this. If he doesn't win you know it's political

    You wonder why we keep entering knowing that no one will ever vote for us no matter what… but if we back out they’ll know they got to us and all of a sudden we’ll be the one country that took Eurovision seriously.

    It’s such an English situation. Stiff upper lip. Don’t let them know they get to you, old boy. Just pay it forward and nick all their fish.

    My only real disappointment of the evening was that I was hoping my four-year-old niece would get into it, but it was no competition for Ryan’s World on YouTube.

    I wonder at what point someone throws a tantrum and tries to get us out of the Big Five funders club

    Great idea. Then we'll fail to score points in the semis.

    It should’ve been the United Kingdolls

    They’d have got us votes. It was a viral sensation from television’s gayest show. Come on!

    People will obviously blame Brexit and the other shit we do but the truth is we sent a nice guy with a crap song that wouldn't have made it out of qualifying if we didn't buy our way in.

    The political stuff doesn't wash with me either. Germany are the most important political entity in Europe and out of all their allies they got 2 points.
    Pretty much this. Brexit is the go to option for anything that goes pear shaped now, including a daft singing contest, and it garners naught but one big yawn from me now.

    Still, the UK entry took his defeat like a champ.

    Sorry I didn't contribute much live but I tricked a number of friends into a mini Eurovision party. So gauged a general reaction from non-EV fans as well.

    1. If your watching to see how the UK will do your not doing it right.
    2. Giving out the scores that way was brutal but dramatic
    3. Top loading the running order with hotties went down well with my all male EVirgins
    4. I liked Iceland as far back as last year, tween daughter liked Bulgarian Billie Elish and the lads went for Cyprus filth "El Diablo"
    5.No one had Italy on their radar (maybe too drunk by then)

    Rather than sulk off I think we should use our funding privilege's to send the 3-4 devolved nations into the semis where you get cut in a much more dignified way.

    Also I heard the full voting stats. Highest UK got was 16th in Malta but mostly bottom 3 everywhere else.
