I award Lloyd Webber douze points for arrogance
Pendle Today, UK 
And with a breathtaking arrogance, his Lordship addresses us thus: “People of Britain, I am here to speak to you about a subject of considerable gravity. A subject that affects each and every one of us. “I refer, of course, to our great nation’s continued failure in the Eurovision Song Contest. The BBC have asked me to unite our kingdom in a quest to bring home the Eurovision crown once more. “Does he really believe anyone is bothered about Eurovision these days?Does he really believe that if he writes a song for the song fest, countries across Europe will fall over themselves to award La Grande-Bretagne douze points instead of their cross-border neighbours?Does he think his songwriting talents will suddenly make the annual allegations about anti-British vote rigging in the press disappear as a successor to previous British winners Sandie Shaw, Lulu, Brotherhood of Man, Bucks Fizz and Katrina and the Waves (names and songs to make your teeth grate) is found?And how far up his cheek is his tongue when he says writing a successful Eurovision song is “the biggest mission impossible of all time”?USE public transport more and leave the car at home, we are told often enough nowadays. Mr Pendle had cause to do just that the other day ? but he will not do so again unless he is forced. For when the cost in his bus fares per week adds up to more than what he spends on petrol, any chance of him becoming a regular passenger goes up in smoke.
