UK should take a leaf out of Belguim's book and start thinking about the 2011 contest NOW!
Start talking to/drawing up a list of former glories that have lost there way a little like Heather Small, Beverley Knight, Natalie Imbruglia, Cerys Matthews, Louise Redknapp, Gabrielle and some other acts like Katie Melua (following this years rumour), Duncan James. And look at some overseas acts like Alcazar, Monrose that have EU success and have tried to represent countris before.
Contact decent songwriters liek Gary Barlow, Xenomania, Pet Shop Boys, Cathy Dennis.
Start the ball rollign and then in Decemebr maybe start a mini melodifestival with winner in first weeks of Jan then a mini EU promo tour.
