OK, I may have supped a few cans of Guinness, but I can’t help feeling I have just witnessed something rather monumental. Maybe something approaching Stonewall in terms of historical importance.

Hyperbole?  Over-sentimentality?  Just plain drunkenness?  I guess time will tell…

For now, there is really nothing more to add to Conchita’s own acceptance speech:

“This night is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom. You know who you are. We are unity. And we are unstoppable.”
