Let's not make a song and dance about it all

Tomorrow will see the House of Commons debate, and then vote, on whether to have a national referendum on our EU membership.  But there is a catch, as demonstrated in this weekend's papers.

The words 'Tory backbench revolt' have been popping up everywhere, along with pictures of David Cameron's 'worried face' in its many different forms. It seems that some members of the Conservative party are misbehaving.

The troublemakers want to leave the EU.  As an island, we are already detached from mainland Europe, and it seems that several politicians want to cut off the other ties.  However, it is of the utmost importance that we remain in the EU for one reason in particular.  Here, I am referring to the continent's most prestigious contest - the Eurovision Song Contest of course (was this not obvious all along?).

In recent years we have been struggling as a nation to win over the hearts of our beloved neighbours but, alas, it appears that the only cure would be to relocate to Scandinavia.  This would be fine - until it snowed.  Then our lives would just stop for a bit and we could pick up where we left off sometime in the Spring.  Simple.

Now all we have to do is find somebody who can sing.

  1. Haha, I don't think even moving to Scandinavia would help us in the eurovison song contest! Even if we were amazing, its way too political!
