Thank God for Sweden

Well here it is, the brilliant Eurovision winning song from Sweden sung by the gorgeous Mans Zelmerlow. A bit of controversy in his past around his attitudes to LGBT people but hopefully he’s no homophobe and I liked the dedication of his win last night. And there is no way in the world I wanted Russia to win. A nice song (and perhaps a nice singer) but the bitter irony of Russia singing a song about peace! Eurovision in their hands would have been a social cleansing exercise to de-gay it and make it more wholesome and family-orientated. And on the day Ireland made history – just a shame they didn’t make it to the Eurovision final, can you imagine the reaction they would have got?
