Eurobollox

We’ve seen it all now.  Think back to Ireland’s impressive launch of the Riverdance phenomenon and compare that to the Swedish ‘interlude’ on the godawful Eurovision Song Contest tonight.

This is the part of the show that is supposed to showcase a country.  All it is doing is pushing every politically correct, leftist progressive stereotype against a backdrop of the constant mind control message to the audience of millions that ‘we are one’.

It long since became a parody of itself.  But now the politicisation of the event has ceased to be subliminal element of the drive for a united Europe hidden behind a music contest,  the whole thing is now an overt and blatant propaganda exercise where the music is incidental.  Like the EU itself, it’s a joke.

    And they still kick out performances for being political….
    “We dont want to be invaded by Russia” bad
    “No borders” good

    PC aside, I was intrigued by the Greek Ladies’ Netball Team. The ska beat of “Alcohol is Free” reminded me of skinhead band Bad Manners – fitting background music for the forthcoming summer race riots in Athens. “We are one”, yeah cobblers.

    I kind of liked the insert where Swedes joked about their constant meetings and supposedly overly democratic decision-making. (The military squad with Lasse, Ingrid and others discussing on whether they should assault or not).

    Of course, in reality the Swedish decision-making is not like that (it’s just as authoritarian as everywhere else, there’s just a pretense of democracy, intended to increase commitment) but it was funny in showing how the progressive stereotype is exaggerated.

    Oh my Gawd, is that Euro-trash still going ? I literally stopped watching it decades ago. And no, not for any political or cultural reasons. Its just plain crap ! From ABBA onwards, it was down hill all the way until, in my mind at least, it fell of a cliff.

    Is there anything from the European continent, other than German made, worth having. In my book, nope !
