    Very true unfortunately.

    Anyone want to voice their opinion as a "Brit"?

    Its a shame but its true. Can spot a Brit from miles away when abroad. Normally a football shirt is the first give away, followed by everything else mentioned above.

    I know its bad, but I did have to chuckle at this bit:

    In Laganas, on the Greek island of Zakinthos, more than a dozen British women were charged in July with prostitution after taking part, the authorities said, in an alfresco oral sex contest.

    Ohhhhh dear.

    And here was me thinking that you would gracefully slot into the group generally categorised as 'lads on tour'

    I think your a reformed Brit....

    Why go on holiday and not have fun? and if that means; cross-dressing (for a laugh of course), drinking loads, singing, getting laid and sleeping in then so be it!

    Don't get me wrong. I don't think you should go causing problems, like causing damage and breaking the law. But being a little raucous is what happens when you get drunk, that's just who the brittish are.


    Some foreigners would get a shock coming over here for a night out obviously!! Lol!

    You can go on holiday and drink/get drunk and have a great time. But there is no need to do it to the point where you are throwing up in the street and generally making an embarrassment of yourself and the nation IMO.

    Jamie Oliver said the other day (can't remember if it was in the paper or on the news) that the people of Britain care more about getting drunk than eating properly.

    This could mean every other country will brand us as fat/obese slobs within a few years just like they do with the Yanks ... though with them it's excess food, with us it's excess drink.

    Hell, they already slag off our teeth

    I'll have to back Mike up.

    Why go on holiday just to be the typical English person?

    Why do we go on holiday? To get some decent weather, have a laugh, and hopefully a tan. Some British are waaaaaaay to premiscuous and holiday retarded.

    'Yes, I spend hours in the air to go on holiday just to drink in Irish pubs with English people and eat exactly the same as I do in England'.

    Boring tbh.

    Get stuck in, get drunk, leave the inhabitions at Gatwick. Just stay within the law of the country you are in.
