Apparently the Iceland might be punished for clearly breaking the rules and some Palestinian BDS organisation themselves reject this of the Icelandic group, as the effect is non-existent
thanks for mho
Geographical location is not relevant for participation in the Eurovision. Hence Australia also participated and Morocco in the past
@tartaarsaus Thanks for shedding light on that obscure subject.Then should those wise guys that do the show not change the name to reflect what it is all about?It is about"if you rub my back, I will rub yours and give you my vote"... and it is a total waste of public money also!
@SueShe I assume the name of 'Eurovision' just stays as 39/41 of the nations participating are geographically in Europe, plus it works better as a well known marketing term. At least in Israel, the public broadcaster has had to take a loan including interest to pay for it, rather than just throwing tax money at it
As for why the Eurovision was held in Israel this year, the winner usually gets to organise it the year later. Last year Israel won with a chicken song.
@tartaarsaus Just imagine what would have happened if it would have been a pig's song.Talking about pigs in Israel (no pun intended), look at this comedy about that subject. Not mainstream but worth watching.When Pigs Have Wings
Thanks for the MHO and my best regards to ole' Baile Atha Cliath. Just love that city. Does the Old Shieling in Howth still exist?
