The song was as good as the result.
Well that's completely untrue. The song was fine. To say that the reason we came last was in any way to do with the song is just burying your head in the sand. Complete la-la land.
You said it, “the song was fine”, most of the others were better than fine. I doubt anyone across Europe was stopping themselves from voting for us because it was their favourite song but they don't like Brexit.
People used to blame our involvement in the Iraq War, but then we upped our game and did alright. We started doing badly again well before Brexit.
Cyprus and Greece exchange points for very obvious, and non political, reasons
Non political reasons? It's completely political. Cyprus is divided between Greece and Turkey, the majority being Greek. So they vote for Greece, and Greece vote for them to tighten their grip on Cyprus. To say that's not political is just weird, plain weird.
Or many Cypriots vote for Greece because they consider themselves Greek, and therefore vote for themselves in the same way we would if we could and visa versa. Not to mention the mutual cultural similarities they will have which mean they'll like the same kind of music and have heard each others songs on the radio.
Those two countries voting for each over isn't going to make much difference to the overall result.
Look at Israel, people thought they didn't do well for political reasons anymore, then they did something people liked and was interesting, then they won.
It’s extremely arrogant to think we are owed votes and the rest of the world is so obsessed with us and Brexit or whatever is going to form part of their judgement.
