Terry Wogan is the most unpleasant presenter (if we can even call him that) on British TV.
Every time I have watched Eurovision he ruins the whole thing with his deeply offensive and xenophobic comments towards nearly every other european country, but particularly towards Eastern Europe.
My blood boils when I think that we are all funding fat cats like him to talk utter rubbish on television through our license fee.
He is nothing more than a dumb twat, who obviously thinks that
he can say what he wants, no matter how many people he is going to offend.
Scrap the hated license fee! Freedom for television in the UK!
Private TV stations would not allow people like him to apear and spread their poison.

And just why did they give this arogant prick a knighthood?!!
