British tourists are urged to curb their drinking . . .

Postby Ray » Mon Jul 20, 2009 2:47 pm

From today's Daily Mail . . .

British tourists are urged to curb their drinking and avoid dangers of travelling abroad.

Leaflets and posters are being distributed to hotels and bars in countries such as Greece, Turkey and Crete urging holidaymakers to 'know their limits'.

The literature warns tourists about the dangers of drinking too much and messages such as 'drinking makes you more vulnerable to violent crime' have been printed on beer mats and frisbees.

Travellers are also being warned not to drink and drive and to keep an eye on their drinks to prevent them being spiked with drugs as 'rape can happen on holiday too'.

Looks like the nanny state is going worldwide.

It assumes that they can read in the first place.

Not that I EVER stick up for British people, but while we were in Crete last month a Danish man (who was completely out of his tree) popped into our hotels bar, he did know his name, but not the hotel where he was staying!

He had been wandering down the main road scrounging drinks off of anyone and everyone for TWO days, slept on the beach and then carried on again in the morning.

The police were eventually called and managed to source his family (who were apparently looking for him!) and off he went to his hotel.

How can anyone get into such a bad state, so wherever you come from, its seems to be a worldwide problem.

Missing my darling Crete by the way!
