but seriously. he was making me feel really uncomfortable. there is a difference between affectionate ridicule and all out offence...
oh look at all those silly foreigners.
i didn't see much of it, but he said something like "it's silly, all the balkans and russians voting for each other."
I'm sure the whole of the Baltic would've been pleased to be called Russian.
but Wogan is part of the magic. The way he said "Oh look- it's Father Christmas" right at the end almost made me wet myself.
are the angles a different race from the french, italians, germans and everyone else they slag off?
maybe they are. i'm not sure what race really means.
It is hardly a pleasant attitude to be expressed on national television, especially during an event aimed at fostering pan-European relations, whatever you call it.
europe, russia, india
are all technically 'caucasian'. so all the same race.
could be wrong.
countries quite obviously voting politically and not for the music - pretty racist?
Although admittedly we were one of the shittest in a large group of turds.
can we all please stop worshipping at the altar of martbowski too. it only encourages him and it's lazy writing.
actually i won't. kissing only.
you did it yourself in that first post.
there was no ridiculously contrived hyphen.
I shall endeavour not to go near his horrible sentences in future.
martbowski: Just a man
The Hyphen: Just a punctuation mark
The Clash: Just a band
best Faith No More song? It is in my book.
it;s really just something made up by wogan. it was possible when the results were decided by juries; but with it being public votes now, you cant really argue that's the case.
countries that are neighbours - likely to have similar taste in music? i think so.
of course its about which country another prefers, it obviously couldnt be avoided. The UK usually gives higher marks to ireland.
the reason say, sweden votes for finland or latvia votes for estonia is because those are the largest ethnic groups in those countries. If, say, India, or Jamaica were in it, who do you think our vote would go to every year?
should do much better. with them being everywhere and that.
someone should write a letter to the Daily Express or something
