image for Scotland independence bid to boost UK Eurovision Song Contest hopes
'Breaking up is hard to do'

Scotland's bid for independence from the UK was claimed to be a 'scam' last night by a music business insider.

The insider who refused to be named said that the plan is for Scotland to get independence, eventually followed by Wales and Northern Ireland. This will result in separate Eurovision Song Contest entries, and allow each of the 'home nations' to vote for each other, improving our overall score.

Guernsey, Jersey, The Channel Islands, The Isle of Wight and Isle of Man will also declare independence to increase our voting options even more. The changes could take two to three years because of paperwork.

Since The Old Soviet Union was broken up into many countries, the entries to the annual music event have increased, but most of the newcomers all voted for their neighbours, alienating the British entries.


Engelbert Humperdinck was chosen by the BBC as the British entry for the 2012 event in Azerbaijan.

The unnamed insider refused to mention whether The Falkland Islands were in on the 'scam'
