Yesterday morning I awoke to hear on the radio that Australia will be taking part in this years Eurovision Song Contest, which as you know is the televisual highlight of Castle Greysquirrel’s year. At first I thought I must be was dreaming, but after looking on the internet, it’s true!!!! Oh mon dieu!!!
This is just too big for me to get my head round at the moment and how do I explain to Nigel that Australia is now part of Europe ……. I can see him now heading for the Geography Department to ask his Geographical friend Alex how this came to be and getting all alarmed about mahoooooosive Seismic shifts while he was sleeping.And if Australia win in Vienna this year and they host the contest in 2016, the time difference will be at least 11 hours, what will happen to the contest? Will we have to watch it in the early hours of the morning or in the afternoon? Questions will have to be asked in the European Parliament.
