Rampant Prejudice Time
I spend a bit of time in Portugal so I’d disagree about that. They gave the world tea, coffee, Eusebio, vindaloo (its a corruption of the Portuguese for vinegar and garlic. However, the legal system is a ‘mare but not as bad as the impenetrable language they speak. The people are pretty feckless more or less. I like it all the same.
Ireland, however… I dislike. Intensely.Posted 5 years agogrumMember
The Belgians are great, wierd, but great.
The dutch are also great.
Had a bad experince in Belgium when I was a kid. Some bearded 50 year old Belgian guy hit my 14 year old brother over the head with a pool cue in a dispute over who was playing next on a pool table in a youth hostel! Also had a nightmare when we drove down a one way road to have a picnic and came back to find they had dug the road up and we were blocked in. Ended up having to take some fence posts out!
That and the whole Mark Dutroux thing have put me right off. I liked the look of Bruges in In Bruges though, and they do make great beer. 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Am I the only one to irrationally, but quite vehemently, dislike another European country?
Because Portugal does my head in. I mean, what have they given the rest of us other than a ridiculous legal system? No gespacho; no Ouzo; no pizza; no pastries; no particular beer; no scholarship; no decent music…the list could go on.
Keep Lisbon for the history I say, but cut the rest off of the Iberian Peninsula and set it adrift in the Atlantic.
So come on. What country do you think kind of sucks?Posted 5 years agoernie_lynchMember
Italy. I can’t stand all the Italians in Italy.
Although bizarrely, every Italian I’ve ever known I’ve liked. It seems that they’re fine when they’re not in Italy, but complete arseholes when they’re at home.
I’m an eighth Italian btw, so can’t be accused of racism.Posted 5 years ago

I like them less when they’re in London. On the occasions I’ve ventured to the Smoke, Italians always seem to be in the way, gathering at the bottom of a set of steps. Maybe it’s a national trait – is that something you’d do for an eighth of your time when in the capital?Posted 5 years ago
