Sir: Blimey. While we were busy welcoming our new chums from plucky, war-torn, democratically challenged Eastern Europe, who should sneak in and steal the Eurovision prize but a couple of Americans?

The Irish entry, you say? No, no. I saw the Irish. They did some amazing dancing half-way through the show. Never sang a word.

This year's winning song for Europe was pure Neil Sedaka meets Carly Simon. About as European as McDonald's. Hmm. They're very popular in Eastern Europe too, come to think of it.

Yours sincerely,
