I thouroughly reccommend "1000 years of annoying the French" - by Stephen Clarke. Its not actually anti-French as such, it just busts a few myths. His other books on living and working in France are also very funny.
I only watched a bit and then the end, what a load of shite. The winning song was tuneless, the girl's voice was boring and had the same effect on me as chalk screaking on a blackboard, whilst our song was total crap. Pleased really, because Waterman thinks he's a genius and he's really quite a cunt. The only thing resembling entertainment were the people dancing together in the streets...and that was because they looked like fucking spazzers. But she'd get it alright, she'd need a ballgag though in case she sang.
