TV Terry Wogan sounded particularly disillusioned at the close of tonight's Eurovision Song Contest and who outside of the Easten Bloc could blame him? For a while I thought the Greek Britney (as my mate Fani described her via text) was in with a chance. But the Russians crept in largely by stealth, receiving votes of some sort from almost everyone with the few douzes tossed in by neighbours. It was a rubbish, dated song sang with a kind of flat charisma and certainly inferior to at least fifteen of the others. Andy Abrahams wasn't *that bad* actually in the end and certainly didn't deserve the ignominy of being bottom of the table because of an alphabet malfunction.
