WHAT a farce. I watched most of the Eurovision Song Contest with growing disbelief.

How is it that all those countries cannot write and produce a good song, and what was Australia doing there anyway? On the other hand, I watched Her Majesty’s 90th birthday celebrations and felt very patriotic and quite tearful.

It was a great celebration of how great our country is and Katherine Jenkins singing I Vow to Thee My Country was superb.

RE the Eurovision Song Contest and, yet again, our pathetic and pitiful contribution to this much- loved entertainment.

Our total lack of success is fast becoming a major annual embarrassment.

So why do not our UK organisers seriously consider inviting some really established performer to represent us in the future?

The likes of Sir Tom Jones or Dame Shirley Bassey could well prevent us from becoming the “musical joke” of Europe!

I’D vote for Brexit if it meant we didn’t take part in the Eurovision freak show.
