You have been watching to much Benidorm, oh and by the way us British have broadened our horizons we even travel to foreign places to watch their strange sports such as that one where you wear hats and these massive shoulder pads and have to throw the ball forwards for some one to catch it to score a touchdown i think it's called, you must have heard of the sport before, funny thing is didnt notice a sole wearing union jack shorts and t-shirts, mind you this was all in this current century not 20 years into the last one, barman another 2 Buds if you please.

Yes we do get along well with the people whose culture we've been borrowing for the last few decades, the former colony whose language we share.

Euro 2016 apart, this is why I always prefer holidays in France and Italy to ones in Spain or Greece. The sorts of which you speak don't normally go to France or Italy because they are hardly any package holidays there.

I tend to do that. And when they ask "with chips?" they get REALLY confused when I reply, "No thanks. What would YOU have with this?"

Is this some sort of joke I don't get? Because I thought that Marbella was in Spain. British tourists are an odd bunch, some of the very best and the very worst you will encounter depending on what sort you meet and where you are. You get it a bit with Dutch and Germans too but for the most part there's no real equivalent elsewhere.

So the Brits who like to watch sky sports, eat an all day breakfast and have a few beers are strange? Really? So if you want a paella with a glass of Rose whilst your jumper is slung over shoulder your ok?
