Even Wogan's fed up with the voting and may quit and he has joined several million viewers who have dumped watching an evening of rubbish for another evening of rubbish and now watch ITV instead.
It was interesting that the BBC the other day asked one person from each of the 43 countries to vote for the song they liked best, and I must stress here the key word was "song". In this BBC vote Sweden were clear winners, yet when it comes to the night itself Sweden were closer to the bottom than the top. What does this tell us ? Clearly the Scandinavian voting block no longer wields the power. Towards the end of the voting (I only watch the voting), my wife was slightly perplexed how I know who was getting 8, 10 or 12 points before it was announced. Simple answer, i know which countries are neighbours to each other.
What an utter waste of license fee payers money, and lets be clear about it, the BBC spends a fortune on Eurovision.
P.S. And no, this is not sour grapes by me. I am not a fan of the UK's entry and even i the BBC poll it came 33rd out of 43.
