While England scraped a 1:0 victory in the footie against Norway today, they were hammered by Sweden 372:12 in the Eurovsion song contest. Engelbert Humperdink may not have been the oldest contestant - that particular acolade went to Buranovskiye Babushki, the six-strong group of pensioners nicknamed The Russian Grannies - but at 76 one has to wonder what the selection committee was thinking. I've never really understood why we don't simply send Robbie Williams or Adele or even Radiohead. I suppose if they didn't win it would finish their careers. Still, we didn't finish last. That honour went to Norway. So, bad day all round for them - as if they cared.
