Boozy Britain may be a 'minority thing,' but you cannot help being confronted by it. It is big, and very much in your face in town and city centres all over the country. Sad but true. And we don't have to worry about the impression we make on other countries: they know. The pictures of the Sheffield Hallam student relieving himself over the poppies on the war memorial, have been flashed all over the world.
If it is any comfort, other countries are following our lead. In Holland people are very worried about the phenomenon of 'coma boozing.' A literal translation of the Dutch expression, but it is clear what is meant.
