First unofficially, then confirmed. TVP, the Polish national broadcaster, has decided not to take part in the coming Eurovision Song Contest in Baku. The reason is as simple as it can be: money. Due to Olympic Games in London and, even more important, Poland being a co-host of European Championship in Football EURO 2012, TVP will spend most of its budget on these two sport events.
Fans all over the country are upset by the decision, however, there is no hope for TVP to change its mind. Therefore, together with Czech Republic, there will be a huge hole in the European voting map in Baku.
