While your sarcasm is accurate, it's not really on point since it's the rest of Europe who has snubbed the UK in the song contest, not the UK itself.

I think the song is aggressive rubbish with no melody - bit like English music circa 2012


One mans aggressive is another mans rousing, and I can hear a melody.
Lulu and Sandy! Are you serious? Cheesey crap that, in my opinion, are on par with nursery rhymes, they're childlike songs.
There were crap songs around 40 years ago, there are crap songs around now.
there were good songs around 40 years ago, and there are still good songs being written and performed now.
I may be wrong, but I get the feeling that you are maybe an older person that is struggling to keep up with the times.

Indeed, we are the warmongering, US lapdog, bullies of Europe. None of the other Eurovision countries want anything to do with us.

Until they need a bailout. Or a military assist when they're on their arses.
