Quote me where I said that.You were telling people who know neither Spanish nor Portuguese that the Portuguese lyrics were virtually unrecognisable for Spaniards. And that's not true.
I never claimed that you personally support Iberian block voting. However, Andorra-Spain is a clear cut case of Iberian block voting, though Andorra has since withdrawn.-First of all, Andorra.
You know why I have to do that? Because oftentimes, Portugal doesn't make the final, thus there's no way to know how Spain would've voted were Portugal in the final.- The Spanish votes to Portugal... Sorry but I can't agree with you. Of course that we give more points to our neighbours (like in every single country in this competition!! EASTERN AND WESTERN COUNTRIES), but it's so funny the way you take the results that support your theory and you erase the results that contradict it (like for example, mixing results from the final and semi-final) .
I was asked to prove that Spain engages in block voting. I did. I never once claimed that Spain always exchanges 12-pointers with X- or Y-country of anything of the sort.Yep, neighbour votes. If you don't see that diaspora voting has been much stronger than neighbour voting last years, sorry but you have a blindfold on your eyes.
You yourself admit that Spain participated in rampant block voting when Andorra was a part of the contest. 8 points to Portugal this year in the semi-final. Make up whatever excuses you want, that's inexcusable.
"Everybody does it!" also isn't an excuse. That's my entire point. Western Europeans like to whine about how the Eastern European states always vote for each other. The entire point of this thread is to show that it happens in the West as well!
