Zzzzz And the winner is… #Azerbaijan?

The people of Azerbaijan at last have the outcome of a vote they can all celebrate. If, like me you fell asleep during the voting for the Eurovision Song Contest last night, you’ll have been somewhat surprised on waking up to discover that Azerbaijan won. Azerbaijan is now trending on Twitter (never thought I’d see that!) and the song has had more than 11 million views on You Tube.

The people of Azerbaijan themselves are using the power of social media to cling onto democracy in a country whose parliamentary elections last year were plagued by so many irregualrities, that the main opposition parties failed to win a single seat!

Surprsing voting patterns and disappointing outcomes? We Brits have kind of got used to that when watching Eurovision! Congratulations to AySel and Arash.
