They then stagger, screaming with laughter at this 'hilarious joke' across the street to a bar on the other side.Practically bowling over two little kids in the process. One guy is literally yelling. Da ya see that,Da ya see that?

YEP matey we all saw it and cringed with embarrassment- Shop keepers and restauranteurs all came out to their steps to watch the dumbass Brits.. Once again
Real shame the police were not called, a few years in a Portuguese jail for sexual assault would have soon ended the "joke". What is it with these elements of British scum that think when they go abroad there's no laws or morals?

..... because "foreigners" don't count.

- and if they were thrown into jail, you can be sure the Mail and the Express would be screaming for them to be repatriated.

The worst incident in Carvoeiro this year was from a large group of Irish holidaymakers.
Their behaviour was so bad that one of the accommodation managements is considering not renting to the Irish again. Fights in bars, refusing to pay for meals etc.
It only takes a few to prejudice some against the many.

A lot depends on where one goes on holiday. Lake Como, Venice or Rome your unlikely to come across the hooligan class.

Sounds like a quote from Byron, but its not true, i was in the maggia valley in switzerland visiting a relative. We went down to italy to the lake and witnessed a music festival with huge numbers of very drunk red wine louts, passing out all over the place, being sick on cars, eating italian fast food [no clue what but i bet it was good]. All while slaughtering popular arias. [operatic thing, zero violence, big police presence all enjoying themselves too.]

On the way back, we took 2 cars driven by his 2 sober daughters, mine had uk plates and was ignored by the border gestapo, his was swiss and was almost disassembled by them, so the wine cheese melons etc were safe in mine :-)
