Spain? ‘La La La La’? Really?

This is hilariously sinister. Eurovision has decided to ban countries who disclose the identity of those who vote in the Eurovision Song Contest. According to the BBC:

It comes after a number of people in Azerbaijan were questioned by police after voting for a song by neighbouring Armenia in this year’s contest.

One bloke had been told he was a ‘potential security threat’ for sending a text backing Armenia’s song, Jan Jan.

The article goes on:

The country’s authorities said people had merely been invited to explain why they voted for Armenia.

Reminds me of post-revolutionary France, where people were merely invited to have a lie down on a bench and enjoy the sights and sounds of Paris from the comfort of a straw-filled basket.
