When I go on holiday I am usually ashamed of being British due to the way we behave. I was in Krakow the other week and prior to this was dissapointed to hear that the city was being spoilt by British twats.

Whilst I saw quite a few stag do's in and around the square, they were all well behaved (although I didn't go to any clubs). I think the regular police patrols helped .

Seem to have it under control.

You see not every Brit is a thug, just another stereotype

"British are just bad news when it comes to drinking alcohol" <-- I think this is an accurate statement, especially with football! (and I am British).

Unfortunately, well behaved British people abroad seem to fall into the minority. :(

i think your a little confused there, badly behaved British people abroad seem to fall into the minority that spoil it for the rest of the British holiday makers.

please don't think it is a majority because its not

it is not the majority of british abroad that are causing trouble

it is the well behaved, civil majority go unnoticed and an ignorant few are causing trouble.

i should like to point out that the poles themselves have people like this as it is. ive been in warsaw now two weeks and i assure you there are an EQUAL proportion (also ukrainans too ive noticed)

and in Wroclaw, plenty of local troublemakers and rather no british on the times of my visits.
So this topic should rather read, Warning to people in general - don't be p1ssheads.

Yeah just look at all those well behaved Polish football fans, they sit quietly don't think about causing a riot and getting their team thrown out of the UEFA cup do they???

this backs daffy's point, the incident i am referring too is just a tiny minority of Polish football fans who rioted at one football match. Although i'm sure the Majority of Polish fans are peacful and just want to see a good game of football.

Its the same with the British and drinking, there are some who drink and cause trouble (Minority) and there are the rest (Majority) who just like to have a drink enjoy the beach and have fun :)

Very true Daffy!

You never get a news report that says something like "One hundred thousand Brits behaved themselves abroad this week".

Same goes for a Saturday night out clubbing - people only noticed the w**kers who get absolutely bladdered and then started fighting with anything and its shadow.

learn to spell before casting your aspursions or maybe travel a little bit more and you will see that there are a lot of well behaved English people out that enjoy and respect other countries cultures and whilst you're at it try stepping off that bandwagon you just jumped on!

equally do you agree the polish troublemakers are embarrassing and typically Polish?

its very simple laydeezee92, there are PEOPLE from ALL locations WORLDWIDE that are plain ignorant and WILL cause trouble. be they Irish, English or Polish.

and they are ALL embarrassing and typically HUMAN.

So please don't be so narrowminded and tar a nation with the actions of a few. As im certain you would not like us to do of your nation. Im quite tired of arguing against stereotypes and narrowminded statments - its points like that that continue to keep them alive rather than see the problem for what it truly is. Rather than so, oh thats so Polish/British/Russian/etc etc. Why not profer a solution to such a culture? limit of alcohol per person? increase responsibility to the bar for selling lethal doses to over the limit persons (off licenses too) etc etc. Stop whinging and jumping on the band wagon and try to help the situation perhaps.

This is my first post on this board... and this might possibly be the worst excuse for a thread I have ever seen.

Look out, British tourists! You might have a couple of beers with some kids who then show you round a derelict factory with shed-loads of asbestos in it which will get into your lungs and kill you.

Daffy as a moderator you should hold your head in same, you have been talking so much nonsense of recent times, just open your eyes when you go to Gdansk and Sopot, the British are just thugs and low life's. Because you are British doesn't mean you have to defend your own kind.

Daffy is Irish. and sorry to bust your bubble.. you seem to not understand when
someone is getting tired of people sterotyping which is what he was saying....

you have done it to me as well... lef get with the program!!

Now Pat, I thought that your on my side, Sorry, my mistake Daffy is Irish (pity the Irish) the point I'm making is that why don't Polish people be more loyal and understanding of the concerns of the Polish people!

Because you are British doesn't mean you have to defend your own kind.

you were trying to make a mod look bad.. daffy is not a bad person and was
picked because he is so sensible..

I am loyal to polish. I have no doubts about my loyality, but I cant say that
bad things dont happen, they do, for everyone.

lol and lol, sorry to disappoint you but I'm a pure breed Pole,

not dissapointing,, but glad you got a chuckle out of it..

Yeah its good to have a laugh, I suppose we are all different and all have our own opinions, like I've mentioned in other treads, I may speak out of turn but I never intend to offend anyone, I have a lot of time and respect for the Polish people, I've done pretty well but unfortunately most Poles are doing it hard. I believe Poland is being used up at the moment and is losing its identity.

Lef, can i ask, do you not like that non Poles are buying land in Poland?
