I know we are, and I dont think it's acceptable.We are talking about neighbour voting.
Why do you think that it's not about music!??? Never thought that we have our own taste? Just like Balkans and United Kingdom too? (should we shoot you for your 12 pts?).
Please explain me why people from Cyprus should be booed? Why people from Ukraine or Norway should be attacked by your press?
It's not about music because it's fairly obvious in the case of Greece/Cyprus that the votes are of political/neighbour nature, and not music. Unless of course both Greece and Cyprus both send the most fantastic songs every single year that 12 points just cant be resisted!
As I said before, our bloc has absolutely no affect on the overall result as it's made up of 3 countries who a lot of the time dont even give above 8 points to each other! But, as I dont believe in hypocrisy, then we should have our televotes for each other (and with Turkey) adjusted downwards by the Jury, just as all the ex-USSR countries should have, all the ex-Yugoslavian, and all the Scandinavian countries, amongst others.
Why votes such as Cyprus>Greece and Serbia>Bosnia and Herzegovina deserve to be booed is because they're wrecking the contest, as I said before, what's even exciting about predictable votes. From the 2 Eastern European blocs, I named accurately the 12 points for nearly all of them, and often the 10's and 8's too. Unless people get a rush from exchanging 12's with their neighbours or something?
It's the Eurovision Song Contest, not the Eurovision Neighbour Contest. Nobody was attacked by the press, the press stated accurately the way the votes went and also congratulated Azerbaijan .
