The Manchester Evening News website has a special section devoted to the current Labour Conference. Readers are invited to check out Peter Devine’s blog “for Conference related news”. The blog is question, though, is entitled “All Things Eurovision” – so alongside news of Caroline Flint’s call for housing purchases is the latest on next month’s Eurovision Fan Convention in Birmingham. Bizarre.
Anyway, it got me thinking, what do the Labour Conference and the Eurovision Song Contest have in common? Suggestions from the floor are very welcome in the comments, but my initial thought was that Britain pays through the nose for both events and doesn’t do very well out of them!
Anyway over to you dear reader for your suggestions… I might compile an Iain Dale-style top ten if I get enough responses!
