Happy Sunday everybody!

How about last night’s ESC results?


I did not like either of these songs in particular, but the announcement of the results was something.  When it came down to Russia versus Ukraine, Ukraine must have taken the win, even though I am pretty sure the results were manipulated, in Russia for sure.

There was also a collective sigh of relief heard over the winner remaining in Europe after all, although nobody really understood how Australia got in the picture in the first place. Then again, the Eurovision Song Contest is still very much like geopolitics, only the costumes are better and it’s much more fun to watch. 

On a more serious note, I am most curious to see how war-torn Ukraine will manage to take on organizing the event next year.

Now, let’s see what else happened in world politics this week…

Sadiq Khan, The World’s Mayor?

I agree with this one 100%. A couple of years ago, I would have said, religion shouldn’t matter in these decisions, but today I say, let’s hope it does. Let’s hope the judicious majority can show the rest of Europe (and the world) how these people can enrich and impove our communities. “It’s a powerful and conscious rejection of the small-minded, divisive politics of the Trumps, Wilders and Le Pens of the world.” Let’s hope it is. And let’s hope we’ll see more of its kind.
