With regard to our own entry, it was a poor song, poorly-sung, and poorly-presented - I’m convinced that the image of a grubby, sweaty changing-room with hints of gay abuse did not sit well with the international voting audience.

Two years ago, the UK’s Sam Ryder came second and, were it not for the huge swell of sympathy for the recently-invaded Ukraine, would have won very easily with a well-written, well-sung, and well-presented song, ‘Spaceman’ - sadly, those who determine the UK’s entry to the competition appear to have learned nothing from 2022 and, the very next year, and again this year, it was back to badly-written, badly-sung, badly-presented dross. And we were caned for it - quite rightly.
