As I write these words I was musing over the Eurovision results on Saturday night, where the UK failed to score any points from the judges and the popular vote in any other country. Given that Australia has voting rights in Eurovision and also gave the UK “null points”, I’d have thought this was particularly stinging. Surely the ties of history count for something? Clearly not, if that is any guide (not that I ever thought that to begin with).
