It's difficult to edit posts when you are using a phone. I know how to do it but it requires a whole lot of hassle deleting stuff and often you end up deleting stuff you want to keep. So you end up with giant trees of comments and pictures.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Because they might be relevant to that particular poster's contribution. Just a thought??

If that was really true, the UK would screen every citizen with a ticket to the Kingdom of Wonder for mental health, physical fitness, and financial security.

Those they don’t pass, don’t get in.

That way, the chance of rescuing a deadbeat Brit would be nil.

Of course, that would only leave British Okhnas left in Cambodia and not any of us.

Embassies are not an extension of the welfare state back home (at least in my understanding).
If you go the embassys page and read its roles it states clearly to protect its citizens abroad

Protect from foreign tyranny and injustice, not protect from spending all your money on booze/drugs and embarrassing yourself. There is literally £0 in the Foreign Office budget for bailing out scumbags for acting scummy abroad.

Internet = good.
Cell phones = good.

Synergistic amalgamation of the two = the worst fuckin' technology ever invented by mankind (including nuclear weapons). :roll:

The only money the Embassy receives is from taxes of Mr Smith's family who is lying drugged and helpless in hospital, without a pennys help from the Embassy.
True the Embassy is not there to pander to people also.
The LEAST the Embassy should do is pay his bill and keep him safe until they contact his family. This is the cheapest option also.
If someone drops a drug into your drink it could turn a normal person into an animal.
It is a DISGRACE that the Embassy is doing nothing!
The Embassy staff should all be fired and replaced with people who can do the job up

How do you think an embassy is supposed to protect its citizens from their drug or alcohol issues?

Embassies do not make the policies they follow the policies that are given to them by the Foreign Office who takes orders from the politicians. Why piss on someone for doing their job?

Ibiza alone would bankrupt an already bankrupted UK with the amount of F ed up brits doing drugs and drink and getting into problems. Next you two will be demanding a roll of bubble wrap be given with each passport issued.
