Netherlands' Eurovision song slammed for 'breaching rules' as viewers fume over pro-Europe lyrics: 'Anti-Brexit!'

The UK's Eurovision act, Olly Alexander, has faced backlash prior to his appearance at the song contest, due to his views on the Union Jack flag.

Speaking to the Big Issue, Alexander said: "I too have an ambivalent relationship with the Union Jack and what that represents to people, because it can feel divisive, it can feel nationalist.


"But it can also feel like a representation of what’s good about the UK and what makes it good… the inclusivity, the diversity.

"I am choosing to focus on those aspects of what I believe being in the UK has given me, in my upbringing as well."



Some questioned why he was representing the UK in the show despite him admitting he felt "ambivalent" towards the flag.

Former Eurovision winner Cheryl Baker was one of those who slammed him.

The Bucks Fizz shared her thoughts on the comments recently and seemed to agree with the criticism.

Speaking to the Daily Express, the Eurovision legend stated: "The flag thingI think that's a bit daft because, you know, a flag is exactly thatit's bringing together countries."



She continued: "I think that was a bit silly. He probably regrets it."

In an exclusive for GB News membership readers, an overwhelming majority (97 per cent) of the 584 voters thought Britain's youth had been indoctrinated to believe patriotism was a bad thing, while just 2 per cent thought they hadn't. 1 per cent said they did not know.
