I heard a discussion on BBC2 this morning where it was said that the UK was lucky to be presenting the ESC because, if it wasn’t for the war in Ukraine, it would have been presented from Ukraine.

I beg to differ. If there was no war in Ukraine, the ESC would still be being held in the UK because, without the huge sympathy/solidarity vote, the (IMHO, pretty poor) Ukraine entry wouldn’t have won last year, Sam Ryder’s UK entry would have taken the top spot.

All IMHO, of course, and YMMV.
