Make them wonder why you're still smiling

So Sweden's result in the Eurovision Song Contest was an embarrassing 18th place.

If browsing the newspapers today it is made clear that the reasons for this pathetic result was:

a) that the East European countries voted for each other
b) that the 4 Nordic countries didn't give Sweden their 12 points. (Why, what happened??)
c) that Europeans vote for cheap and tacky music and don't understand the quality that Sweden produce.

So even though our song was obviously the best by far, as usual, there was very little we could do about it.

This, my friends, is smugness!

Smugness: Exhibiting or feeling great or offensive satisfaction with oneself or with one's situation; self-righteously complacent.

Being smug - a concept often associated with Tony Blair! (well, at least by some of us)
