'Quaffing and slurping', 'red faced Brits', 'champagne and oysters'

Sounds like a well balanced, impartial article.

I gave up reading after that part. Usual lazy jornalism and such comments are really rather rude about residents as we aren't all like that.

I mean, it's not as if anyone in the UK ever drinks too much and falls over in the street in a drubken state...

Are we getting a little too sensitive? OK, so they rolled out (a not entirely unfair nor inaccurate) stereotype which is pure laziness, but the rest of the piece is hard to argue. A decent summary of current reality I would have said and I can't ever remember defending the Torygraph ever in my life before.....

British cities are full of pissheads falling down, throwing up and fighting while inebriated. So what is new ? Welcome to Sodom and Gommorha

No, just bored of cliches and stereotypes.

Yes I stopped reading at that point too. I don't think I have ever quaffed in my life. Slurped once or twice though.
