Not sure whether to be cheering my home, the UK, who have no hope as usual, or Cyprus, my family's origins, who also have no hope xD

You have to ask that question?
Is HRH Queen Elizabeth II head of state of Cyprus?
If not the decision should be obvious

Right if we're talking about Eurovision I'm off.
But with Australia there is an extension to the drinking game

Then do real drinking?
I rarely do this "pretend", even rarer without a real drink or 20 too

The Australians seem to be going through a bit of an identity crisis at the moment. First they won the Asian Cup in football and now they are entering the Eurovision Song Contest.

Wait, so you guys drink irl together on here? I'm not sure what's worse, when I thought this resembled an little girl's tea party with her imaginary friends or now i realise this thread is an alcoholics gathering.

And all that means is they were seen as too far left. The right wing media portrayed Miliband's labour as old labour, and the SNP as radical leftists. Everything else you mentioned was window dressing. There were significant differences in the Tory and Labour manifestos; don';t believe the Green hype.
There were some difference, but major differences no. We had three big tent, catch all parties hanging around the centre, one slightly to the left, one slightly to the right and one slightly more liberal. We've all grown up at a time where there wasn't a hair's breadth between the parties, that doesn't mean that as soon as small cracks start to appear there is clear water between the two.

Let's take a look at You Gov's 5 most important issues to the voters. Economy, pretty much the same, health, small differences but pretty much the same, immigration, identical, welfare, a bit of difference to be fair but only when it comes to levels of cuts and where they fall, housing, pretty much the same.

...They're run by a non socialist state, so I have no idea what you're talking about.
The NHS isn't socialist because the government isn't? Try and find a cashier to pay next time you take a visit. You might get a little confused when he/she hands you money back instead of the other way around.

Can't believe a year has passed since 2014 Eurovision, it's scary.

Anyway, israel are terrible and if this song does well I have lost faith in Europe.

Wish France wouldn't sing in French, but then to demand everyone speak in English isn't quite fair. She has a good voice though

Unfortunately after this performance the UK will have as much chance of winning as a Liberal Democrat.

Yes, we've all grown up and ended the trite "socialism vs capitalism" debate. That doesn't mean there's a hairbreadth between the Parties; it means the left has moved into the sensible middleground.

We live in a mixed economy, not a socialist one, and the NHS exists. I'm not sure in what order exactly you're putting these facts together to prove that everyone wants to live in a socialist economy.

Reminding most of Europe of its **** times under the Nazis or communism

Armenia is making me want to cut again

Given the Russians were knocked out in the semis because they don't waste their money on buying into the finals...

The tune is catchy but it got a bit boring after a while because there was no build up or climax in it.
