Eurovision damages Euro feeling
The poor showing of the Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest in recent years could help to explain the lack of enthusiasm among Dutch people for the rest of Europe. "I get the impression that a portion of the population is against the expansion of the European Union because we increasingly don't get very far in the song festival," Jules Maaten, the leader of the Dutch Liberal Party (VVD) in the European Parliament said. The Netherlands failed to qualify for a place in the final at the weekend. The Finns won with a rock song performed by monsters. The result of a poll released by the Dutch government last week showed that a majority of the population is against allowing more countries into the EU.
Siis.. öh. Hollanti ei tykkää EU-laajenemisesta, koska eivät menesty Euroviisuissa?
