Last month I invited readers to place their bets on Conchita Wurst to win Eurovision, Europe’s biggest song contest. I had no idea what Mr. Worst sounds like, but it makes no difference when he looks like this:
Conchita Wurst won the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 with a score of 290 after a grandiose James Bond theme-like ballad, Rise Like a Phoenix, before a TV audience of around 180million people in 45 countries.
A warning before viewing the song that defines the current state of European culture — I only made it 28 seconds before I was overcome by revulsion and had to turn it off, so I have no idea what comes after that:
We are at a point where talent is irrelevant. The prize will go to whomever is most likely to make decent people sick, for reasons that are sicker still.
Unless there is some radical reversal, it might be for the best if Muslims just put us out of our misery.
