An open letter to the Engish Tourist Board

I have just composed and despatched the following letter to the English Tourist Board
Dear Sirs,

Many years ago, a delightful European country scored 'Nul points' (French accent essential) in the Eurovision Song Contest. It did Norway no harm; indeed, they went on to become one of the most prosperous and attractive countries in Europe.

Last night, the English entry achieved the same distinguished score.

Whether or not the voting was political - and I did not listen, so I am unable to offer a critical opinion - if precedent has anything to do with it, you should make a virtue of this drubbing.

Update your publicity. You have been handed the ace of trumps. Use it.

Yours etc.,

Josh Jemini
I wonder if they will take my advice...
