And I heard GB voted Abba- Waterloo (1974) as the best ESC song ever.

Maybe they did a stupid thing called "Brexit", yet they're still a monarchy and they have a great musical taste ;)

 

About yesterday - the Polish TVP made a commercial break during the part starring that transsexual host. The Polish law doesn't allow the public TV to make commercial breaks in the middle of one show (in football, when you have a 15-minute break between two halves, usually there's 7 minutes of commercial/autopromotion, one minute of studio, so that there is some other point in a schedule, and another 7 minutes of commercial/autopromotion).

Saint Helena was what I was looking for. Arguably, the most thing to ever happen to the island (besides the airport being built and opened).

Right, so the correct answer to your question wasn't what you thought was the correct answer, better check the facts before becoming a quizmaster :d

He died on Saint Helena, that’s the end of his story as far as I’m concerned.
