    Congratulations to NATO on winning the Eurovision “Song Contest”.

    Haven’t watched it for years since Terry left, his dry comments were the only thing worth watching it for.

    I was under the impression that songs with political comment included weren’t allowed?

  • “I was under the impression that songs with political comment included weren’t allowed?”

    They’re not.

  • Anglo-Irish

    How did that one slip past?

  • Barney

    I look forward to next years ditty about the 100,000 Poles slaughtered by the Nazi sympathisers in Galicia and Volhynia

  • Because it was “about the 1944 deportation of the Crimean Tatars”.

    You should read the linked articles…

  • Anglo-Irish

    So the events of 1944 are not considered to have any political significance at this point?

    Presumably Russia took this with their customary good grace?

    Ahh, just read the link as you suggested, Could have been worse, at least Putin hasn’t ripped his shirt off and rode into Stockholm on a white charger,… yet

    Maybe someone should have pointed out that there’s a place in the EU where the events of 1690 and 1916 still hold some political influence?
