I am on long train jourrney and have been without human company for some time. This probably explans why I have been excited beyond description by the idea that as well as saving the earth from destruction by asteroid, it's time for Lembit Opik and his harmonica to restore the UK's credibility in Europe by taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2013. This shouldn't suggest that I'm doubting this year's contender Englebert Humperdinck's abilities, because we have to give him a chance, after all, but I recognise that the job may take longer than one year to complete.
Lembit would be an excellent choice. It would keep him busy, raise his profile and possibly launch a Europe based career.
I should be clear that this is not my idea. I'm protecting the guilty to an extent, although it might be fun to give you a hint as to their identity.Tthey are from the younger part of the Scottish party. It is, however, entirely my idea that Annie Lennox should write the song. That should give you a further clue in identifying them as they currently live in the place of Ms Lennox's birth.
If you think this is a good idea, please muster up as much support as you can through whatever social neetworking media you choose. If, #lembitforeurovision trended on Twitter, the momentum would be unstoppable.
I have never managed to sort out doing links on the iPad, but if any of you kind sould would post the link of Lembit handling himself really well in a recent music video in the comments, I'd be ever so grateful.
So, it's over to you, dear readers. You have the power to make this happen. You can make Lembi the new Cliff Richard. Get to it.
