Russia Today Mocks Pompous Brits Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Jul 29, 2014, 11:41 PM

The Russian media is striking back at the United Kingdom. Russia Today is describing modern-day Brits as "drunkards, intolerant, and ignorant."

Russia Today reports that, "Ignorant, intolerant, overly nationalistic folk who drink too much and stomach terrible food? Those grim attitudes reflect how many young people view the UK from the outside, according to a recent study published by the British Council."

RT noted that the British have earned notoriety for pompous rude behavior.

According to Russia Today, "Domestic concerns about the culture of hedonistic binge-drinking and loutish antics are nothing new, and are reflected in the views of those surveyed. Asked to note British citizens' worst characteristics, a sizeable 27 percent claimed they “drink too much” – a figure which peaked at 34 percent if the survey respondent had set foot in the UK and experienced the drinking culture first-hand."

The British Government is calling for Brits to "improve international perceptions."
