Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2013 - Malmö
The question is to us Brits think of the Song contest as a bit of a joke or do we take it seriously, or is the truth that it's somewhere in the middle?
The standard approach is to pretend to see it as a joke but be bitter afterwards because you didn't win or even did badly. That's how we do it.
