National Image Not Good.

Just in case anyone thinks Britain's yob culture is a figment of the British media:

The mayor of the Latvian capital of Riga says British stag parties will no longer be welcomed with open arms.

Nils Usakovs told Latvian magazine Rigas Laiks the city had run out of patience with unruly British tourists who misbehaved.

Mr Usakovs said: "The only problem is that we have a large share of those British tourists."

Riga is one of a handful of low-cost central and eastern European cities popular with stag parties.

Mr Usakovs said some British visitors were guilty of misbehaving: "Let's not be politically correct - unfortunately, this is their speciality."

Latvia doesn't want our drunken holiday makers which is kind of embarrassing. On the plus side, they can't really afford to be too choosy in this recession! We may be a nation of drunken lowlifes but we have hard(ish) currency and they are poor..... bwahahahahaha.
