Disgruntled acts who didn't quite make the OGAE grade in the pre-qualifying panels have been taking to the internets in their floods complaining that their shoddy bedroom witterings had been cruelly discarded, and explaining in depth how their song, and only their song, was the one that could have saved Eurovision for the UK for now and ever more.
