AN 18-year-old British teenager is so proud of his ability to drink too much that having allegedly almost having drunk himself to death after slinging beer and 75 mixed shots of Sambuca and Vodka in a bar in Magaluf he wants to keep going.
Unsurprisingly the boy, Cameron Relf, who works in a food-processing plant and comes from Walsall, passed out and was unconscious for 15 minutes before an ambulance collected him and took him to a hospital, where he was attended by doctors and kept in for eight hours before being discharged.
Surprisingly rather than apologise for the trouble and expense that he had put the Spanish health authority to, he simply boasted that he would be out drinking again as soon as he could, and might switch to Jagerbombs in order to stay conscious.
Whilst the stupid activities of this young man, eligible to vote in the referendum, shouldn’t be promoted, there is a more important story behind him, that shows that despite the protestations of the local authorities, the excesses so regularly reported of British and other European drunks have not been curtailed as yet.
Mallorcan taxpayers must wonder why they have to be responsible for the policing of such a difficult area with other parts of the island potentially disadvantaged, and indeed all that lads like Cameron Relf do is add to a stereotype of the drunken uncontrollable British abroad.
If this behaviour is repeated all over the EU then maybe the other 27 countries will have their own referendum about whether they want the UK to remain!
