  1. I don’t reckon the commentator for the Eurovision on BBC TV, Graham Norton, made himself any friends when he likened British fans waving Union Jacks and cheering for Engelbert Humperdinck to “a BNP rally”. Especially as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee approaches, and a lot of people will be waving flags and cheering.

  2. Those aren’t grandmothers , they’re typical Russian women of 40 years of age who have been drinking their whole lives
