Vir Cantium

I'm right, you know …

And you thought Eurovision was only an annual event

Croydonian has picked up on an instance of a bunch of Balkan states voting one of their number onto the Security Council of the UN.

So here’s an interesting comparison: voting in Eurovision and at the UN. One involves an unashamed display of national herd behaviour and back-scratching in a vote on something of falsely inflated importance (though which we still have to pay for regardless) but which has virtually no weight or significance in the outside world.

The other is an international song contest.

(Boom boom.)
