Eurovision: Ban The National Juries!

People of Europe and the Eurovision Community,
I believe that the juries should be scrapped and let 100% of the voting to go to the people. We should be able to decide who our favourites are without the juries destroying the true winner’s chances; the juries should not be able to take control.
Over recent decades, certain patterns have been obviously on show, highlighted by this year's contest once again, that juries vote according to geographical location (known as Block Voting) and their predictable votes for the top songs, that the majority of the time do not reflect the interests of the viewer, how can that be justified? This is not only frustrating but saps the fun out of the world's favourite song contest, they must stop!
A main example of this involved the UK this year: On telephone votes, Poland got the most votes, so you expect that they should get a decent amount of points. No, the UK gave nothing because the national jury did not like it and put it last. How is that fair? This was the same in 4 other countries, including Ireland.
I love Eurovision and believe it is one of the greatest highlights of the year, but I do not want to see this politically-lead era that plagues the contest at the moment.
So join me and sign this petition, see the banning of the National Juries and we can all enjoy a non-political Eurovision. Be a part of the biggest rule change in Eurovision history.
