    I can't give you any rep just yet Scoobs, but well done on grabbing the crown from Chris this year! Pity that despite the so called fairness of the phone vote, the same old political voting went on!

    My keyboard's running out of ink....

    Thanks Bigc. I agree, the voting was no different was it...even the German crowd were aware of it booing when a country did. I missed Ireland's vote, did they give the UK 12 points does anyone know?

    I don't think that it is as political, and I am sure that it is more down to countries bordering each other being into the same music at the time or perhaps knowing of the people representing their border countries.

    A bit like the UK giving 12 points to Ireland because most people know Jedward.

    I do think that the fact you have countries scoring that do not even participate is always going to favour countries in the scandinavian group, the balkan group and the former soviet group.

    I was expecting the UK to give Ireland 12 pts because Jedward are so well known over there. I dont think Blue were ever that popular over here plus I thought they were pretty rubbish last night. Send Take That next year and you'll definately get 12 pts!

    I thought Jedward were absolutely awful...so they didnt let me down. It wouldnt matter who the UK sent, we still wouldnt win...we could send The Stones and Europe would still say non. Next year we are rumoured to be sending Blue Peter...with this is one I made earlier.

    As Ireland's economy is so fragile and their borrowing so huge in today's world, they probably didn't even want to win Eurovision this year as it would be probably too expensive for them to have to host it next year if they won.....hence entering Jedward this year...(I bet they were cacking themselves when the lads became quite strong favourites at one point.)

    But seriously, surely it's got to be profitable in the long run for ANY country to win and then host Eurovision......maybe as long as they don't make a habit of winning consecutive years.....because....

    ....I could be wrong but didn't the same kind of thing happen back in the '90s.....Ireland won Eurovision something like 4 years out of 5, which proved to be so expensive to keep hosting the next event, it nearly brought their TV company RTE to its knees financially, so they purposely fielded naff entries so they could save themselves from more expense.

    They should of taken a leaf out of our UK book....we've been doing that for 14 years....it would have saved Ireland millions
