I've sent several RTPs but they've fallen on deaf ears. Best thing to do is not feed the troll.
Now, here's a thought. With Sweden now on course to match Ireland's record (John's Melfest landslide was bigger than either Loreen or Mans) I can see a scenario where Sweden win or at worst do very well, but the UK, with a song written by the same guy, does very badly.
Is this going to be a "watershed moment" and finally questions might be asked outside the hard-core fan base about the BBC's selection process? The problem is the UK fans are being dismissed as "they're only whinging because it's not Melodifestivalen" - we've seen that on here.
I think there'll be a big gulf in production values.
Sadly such questions probably not going to be asked. A lot of the genreal public will simply think that Europe hates us, we would flop with a Brit or grammy winning song, blah blah. The BBC don't mind this being used an excuse too much for as long as the contest rates well and is cost effective they will keep entering (bar geo poltical issues with Russian for example.)
