They might not like Conchita, but they can’t stop chart hit

Have your say

With Russia flexing its muscles over in Ukraine for the past few weeks, there’s been much doom-mongering about conflict.

Things reached fever pitch last Saturday night when the Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin claimed it was the end of Europe.

Oh no, what must have happened? What political catastrophe could have occurred to cause such an incident?

Well, it was bearded Austrian drag queen Conchita Wurst winning the Eurovision Song Contest that got Russia all in a lather.

Russian officials even banned fans from staging a parade in his/her honour.

But the song has apparently rocketed to the top of the charts there. They couldn’t stop that...
