More Eurovision double speak

I heard some Scandinavian chap on the radio last night who is head of programming for the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the people behind the Eurovision song contest.

He was trying to explain that Eurovision was a fair competition which votes on the basis of the song, not for political or other motives, but then extraordinarily explained that Britain cannot expect other nations to vote for it if Britain and the BBC continually ridicule the Eurovision song contest.

Now this chap from the EBU must be some sort of prize pillock because he was in one breath trying to tell us it was a fair competition which where songs were voted for on their merits, but then in the next voice said that people wouldn't vote for Britain because of reasons that were nothing to do with the song ?

Double speak or the usual Euro-bollocks ? No wonder so many people are sick of European institutions.
