MALIA, Greece — Even in a sea of tourists, it is easy to spot the Britons here on the northeast coast of Crete, and not just from the telltale pallor of their sun-deprived northern skin.

They are the ones, the locals say, who are carousing, brawling and getting violently sick. They are the ones crowding into health clinics seeking morning-after pills and help for sexually transmitted diseases. They are the ones who seem to have one vacation plan: drinking themselves into oblivion.

What do you think? Is it the repressed nature of their own society that makes them spring loose when in foreign countries?

If you read the article, you'd have heard about the women arrested for prostitution in Greece following an oral sex contest.

And the 1,500 British deaths over a one year period in Spain.

They're probably just bored in their home country, so they go out and ruin others.
