Was There An Apparent Biasness Towards United Kingdom?

United Kingdom finished last with only a miserable 14 points. UK was represented by Andy Abraham with his song Even If – which was surely worth more than 14 points.
It is said that some degree of “bias voting” were made, with many former Soviet states awarding Russia the maximum 12 points during the voting process.

I think it’s tremendously disappointing from the point of view of the United Kingdom,” said Sir Terry Wogan (commentator on the competition for the BBC since the 1970s)
Andy Abraham gave, I think, the performance of his life with a song that certainly deserved far more points than it got… When you look at the points that Spain got, that Bosnia-Herzegovina got – some really ridiculous songs“, he added.

Anyway, here’s a clip of the song which won Russia the award:
