Its not big, it's not clever but mercy me when you've had a few its funny - British people pissing in public has been frowned upon in almost every place in the whole entire world since Britain flaked out and started giving back the Empire (what else is there to do). But Latvia has finally had enough, strapped on a pair of political balls and with a wag of their finger has sent English stag doers to the European naughty step.
The mayor of the Latvian capital of Riga has finally had enough with some of the 93,000 British tourists that visit Latvia's capital every year and is in the process of pooling together some of the bravest policemen to go undercover and oust these unruly patrons.
He is "thinking about making a tourist police who will be located in the old town and will pay more attention to these tourist issues." A new wave Gestapo springs to mind. A group of mild mannered Latvian locals who pull sting operations on unsuspecting football louts, bang them up and send them on a non-stop flight back to Blighty.
The final straw for this city was the continual desecration of Riga's Freedom Monument, a memorial that salutes the brave soldiers killed during their fight for freedom between 1918 and 1920. The Monument itself has become a giant urinal/jungle gym. If the Brits aren't pissing off something then they're hanging off it half naked and poised for a photo.
At least when the British take the piss, they take the piss properly.
