You have to ask yourself why you think the average European is less decent and open - I assume you must think this as you have brought it up and I have said nothing about it. That's not a nice opinion to hold, you might want to consider you motivations about holding it.

Does that 'decent' bit apply to the 600 British youths who rampaged through a Portuguese seaside town last Sunday night.? Drunken young men terrorising locals,engaging in battles with the police.. Those decent British citizens?

Yeah, fake news.

It seems so unfair that they don't make up these stories about non-Brits.. I suppose it's that anti-British conspiracy foreigners have been waging for generations.

Bloody foreigners. They're too stupid to use real Brits in their fake video.

Of course not, drunken Brita in holiday are only having a bit of innocent fun.
What their hosts do not understand is that they are only behaving in exactly the Same way as they do in the UK.

I presume you are being sarcastic about the "innocent"? The point is that these are a minority of people and do not represent the 'average'.

(Unfortunately though with increased family breakups, poor parenting and care homes, 'feral youth', drugs, easy access to alcohol this behaviour is increasing in the UK.)

Their behaviour is not that unusual, it is probably the same " minority " who cause the same problems in our towns and cities every weekend.
The sad thing is that it is no longer a small minority what ever the cause.
Two weeks ago we had over 20,000 people of all ages in our local " Summer festival night " in Portugal.
People of all ages and nationalities, a lot of alcohol was consumed ,but we certainly did not see any trouble.
The reason why ,possibly ? no large numbers or concentrations of British in the 18-25 age group.

If I remember correctly it was you who said that you believe that the British are one of the most tolerant and open people in Europe. If it wasn't you I apologise. If it was you please let me know the source of your infinite wisdom.

The Local Police informs the Public Prosecutor of a crime of hatred of the Nazi group of s'Arenal

The investigation indicates that they shouted "foreigners out!" in front of the presence of a young black in the local of the street of the Ham

The Local Police's Hate Crimes and Intolerance Service (SADOI) has prepared a report for an alleged hate crime and has sent it to the Prosecutor's Office in the presence of a neo-Nazi gang last Friday in the Bierkönig Of the Playa de Palma. The investigation finds that the group started shouting "strangers out!" when watching a black young man next to the singer Mia Julia…

According to the report prepared by the Local Police, the events that took place at 2:30 in the afternoon on Friday at the busy Biergarten in the Calle del Jamón…

A group of about 15 Nazis, the so-called Hammerskins HFFH of Frankfurt, broke into the Bierkönig last Friday about two-thirty in the afternoon and hoisted the Kaiser war flag. Suddenly, they started shouting "strangers out!" The singer Mia Julia suspended the performance at that precise moment and was interrupted for twenty minutes. They also wore tattoos with Nazi symbols and T-shirts on which they could read Malle Nazi Kiez (Majorca Red Barrio Nazi).

The agents identified the 15 members of this neo-Nazi band considered "very violent", since it has carried out numerous incidents in Germany.

Seems like the Germans are now exporting their racist filth to Mallorca, doesn’t it, Ami? Funny how you never mentioned it…or maybe you didn’t see it?

15 Germans in Magaluf over 600 Brita in Albufeira.
When it comes to letting their nation down, Brits are much better at it than the Germans.

Indeed, every country has their wingnuts, but the leftist self-flagellating haters who so clearly dislike and disdain their own countrymen can only focus on Brits.

It must be difficult for them to hate their own people so much that they can only look for negatives the whole time.

You were the one talking about the average European being less decent than Brits, I never mentioned the decency of Europeans.

Out of interest, do you have any links for the 600 Brits fighting in Portugal?
