Why Ireland should boycott the Eurovision

https://www.rte.ie/eile/2018/0524/96567 ... urovision/

"I recall thinking as I watched, ‘well if you wish to create future terrorists you’re going the right way about it’. I was reminded of an incident I witnessed on the bridge in Derry during the seventies when I saw two teenagers being bullied and harassed by three British soldiers. Their anger was palpable. And, of course, those of us who had occasion to cross the border during the ‘Troubles’ will have experienced , as guns were pointed at us by young British soldiers, from ditches and literally in your car window, a reaction of ‘ how dare they do this to us in our own country’."

"I visited South Africa during the apartheid era and I believe that the Israeli Policies of deprivation and humiliation are as evil, if not more so than those perpetrated by the Boers."

The Israeli Embassy's response to the Boycott

https://www.rte.ie/eile/2018/0531/96736 ... e-problem/

"The Israel conflict is not like Northern Ireland, or South Africa. It is more like South Korea versus North Korea - the struggle of a flawed but fundamentally decent country to survive in the face of existential threats from totalitarians."

Kate Miller-Heidke, the girl who sings in Michael van der Aa's VR operas, will perform at Eurovision this year.

Katie Boyle was a class act, royalty. And in the days when people spoke French as well.

Royal Eurovision... People get excited about those titles as if they meant anything - haven't you seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi? You can have the Force even if your ancestors were "nobody".

Actually, I never saw any of those films .. a bit drivelly for me. But don't let me spoil your enjoyment.
Caterina Irene Elena Maria Boyle, Lady Saunders (née Imperiali dei Principi di Francavilla) was born in an Italian royal palace.

Foreigners have trouble to understand the Ukrainian sense of humour. Just like the people, it knows no saints, taboos or respect (self-respect included). Don't joke about Russians with Russians and don't joke about the Church or sex with Polish girls, but with Ukrainians - everything goes.

Considering what I've seen people calling work these days, it qualifies!

Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na

You look sad and lonely
Is something wrong tonight?
Why this rush to run away?
Things will be alright
Just be strong and look at me
Hear me when I say
Who cares that you're out of love?
It happens every day
All your dreams will come your way
No matter what you do
Love all colors of this life
And to yourself, be true
Don't forget my number
Call me anytime
I will always tell you life is beautiful and fine
Say na na na
On a doctor's order please say na na na
There's a light for you that waits, it's na na na
Say na na na, say na na na
You're not alone, so stand up, na na na
Be a hero, be the rainbow, and say na na na
Say na na na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na…
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na
All your dreams will come your way
No matter what you do (Tell me)
Love all colors of this life
And to yourself, be true (Is it true?)
Don't forget my number
Call me anytime
I will always tell you life is beautiful and fine (Na na na)
Say na na na
On a doctor's order please say na na na
There's a light for you that waits, it's na na na
Say na na na, say na na na
You're not alone, so stand up, na na na
Be a hero, be the rainbow, and say na na na
Say na na na (Na na na)
If you're feeling lonely (If you're feeling lonely)
We can take it slowly (We can take it slowly)
Think I'm going crazy (Think I'm going crazy)
Yes, I'm going crazy
We can all go crazy
Bir, iki, üç
Say na na na
On a doctor's order please say na na na
There's a light for you that waits, it's na na na
Say na na na, say na na na
You're not alone, so stand up, na na na
Be a hero, be the rainbow, and say na na na
