Unless you are British you have no idea of the impact of Eurovision. My view is, c'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas la guerre and best seen through large amounts of alcohol.
Some really good songs. I sometimes wish we were a bit less insular with music. Then again I choked on my gin after watching the Romanian entry.
Tom Marlowe has just sent me a note saying that some of the entries do not accurately reflect centuries of proud warrior tradition. On the other hand I think that some of the ladies' dresses show courage worthy of the finest military tradition.
