My facebook feed contains posts from people saying they wont be watching eurovision, fair enough each to their own but why feel the need to broadcast it?

Wow wow wow wow Waterloo
Finally facing my Waterloo"

Jebus there's some stretch there Rorz - you trying to justify the hosting of a European Song Contest in a middle-eastern conflict zone because one of the winning songs way back in the day referred to a European battle that had taken place more than 150 years previously.

Congratulations on your shark-jump!

Once you are old enough to go into pubs on your own you'll realise the conversations there don't tend to be about Eurovision song-contests

If anything they're raising awareness of the Eurovision, as a lot of people would just think it started on Saturday.

I saw a few Facebook comments yesterday of people saying "watching the Eurovision!" and then reply replying with "so you support the murder of children?"

Gobshites. Viva Israel, Vive L'Eurovision
