Voting against a particular country is easy. You just vote for someone else.

Which is incredibly ineffective. So ineffective that you'd need a public boycott campaign which would just have the countereffect of drawing more support for the superstar to even have a chance of it working.

If the people who think they're voting negatively choose a random song, then their votes are spread out and the fans vote will carry the superstar, making precisely no difference. If they unite together behind one song solely to stop a song, if they ARE in great enough numbers, then they can push the offending song down... one place. In one set of votes.

If you use your vote to vote against someone else, it's 1/24th as effective as any positive vote for them. We send a big star on that level then no negative 'cheating' campaign is going to stop us getting on that left side, and that's not even factoring in the juries who'd probably fall over themselves to show it.

No, all people need to do is disregard the UK song and vote for their favourite from the rest.

Somebody elsewhere said the the last few Italian performers were of a similar status in Italy to the likes of George Ezra and Dua Lipa here. They are probably more like the sort of act we should be looking at. I was talking to somebody this morning who suggested Jarvis Cocker. He could probably come up with something that slightly pokes fun at Eurovision but without taking it too far.
