Byline: Richard Williamson

LET'S say Viva Espana! and gracias to the court for sending drunken Coventry thug Steven Handy to jail for four years for attacking stewardess Fiona Weir with a bottle.

But why do people think that the only way of enjoying a holiday is to get blind drunk and fight?

Some of them are pie-eyed before they even get on the plane and remain blotto for the next 10 days.

So what's the point of going anywhere at all? They could simply stay at home, murder their brain cells with a bottle of vodka each day and save everyone else a lot of trouble.

It's hardly surprising that our reputation has sunk so low in the world when the only Brits most people ever meet are beer-and-vomit- stained yobbos shouting obscenities and threatening to beat them up.

A case of Rude Britannia, I suppose.
