IN case you want to make plans to be out that night, this year’s Eurovision Song Contest is on Saturday May 13. The 2022 winners, Ukraine, cannot host the event so the honour has gone to the UK who were runners-up, and it will be held in Liverpool.
The Government is giving £10million ‘to help ensure the event truly showcases Ukrainian culture’. Its press release says: ‘The money will support Liverpool City Council and the BBC’s partnerships with Ukrainian artists and performers to ensure a collaborative show celebrating music and how it unites people from around the world.
‘It will also support security, visa arrangements and other operational aspects of the contest, as well as Liverpool City Council’s schools, community and volunteering programmes.’
We all know the Government recognises no limits when it comes to spending our money, but isn’t dishing out £10million for Eurovision without a by your leave taking the mickey?
Feel free to discuss this or anything else on your mind.
