Palestinian rehearsals are progressing noisily

It's that time of year again, when Europe's best singers congregate in one place and sing their hearts out for no real reason at the Eurovision Song Contest, and this year, a historic occasion presents itself with the debut in the contest of a competitor from Palestine.

Saturday night sees the 64th edition of the contest at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds - not surprisingly in Tel Aviv - after Israel's Netta won last year's bout in Lisbon.

And, in times of peace, love, forgiveness, and reconciliation, the Israelis have extended the hand of friendship over the barbed wire, and invited the Palestinians - their mortal foes - to take part, in order to show goodwill and camaraderie between singists.

The Palestine entry is sung by the 21-year-old Sharifa al-Nulpoint, and is entitled 'Give Me Back My Land'.

It's a right fucking racket, and tipped to finish 41st, just in front of the UK entry, whose representative and song I haven't even bothered to research.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
