    You go to another country you obey their laws no matter how ridiculous you think they are.... I am sure some foreigners come here and think some of our laws are stupid and we would want them punished if they broke them sooo....

    I have no problems with what the police etc did.

    I think with the Spanish and Portuguese police,we are now easy targets to supplement their meagre funds!

    Funny that.


    All the shouting over immigrants that should abide by UK rules.

    Its a bit tough on the punters isnt it?

    Now if I am in a bar in Portugal (or anywhere else for that matter) and it was announced that the bingo was about to start I will have a justifiable excuse for legging it.

    She may well have known the law. However what about others in the bar who were also fined and given a suspended prison sentence for watching people playing Bingo.

    The Bingo players and watchers who were probably unaware they were breaking the law now have a criminal record which they will have to disclose if asked.

    A bit OTT I think

    It's a bit sad though when asked "what were you done for, having a dink in a bar watching bingo or not watching" the word will spread and people will not feel safe going there on holiday and go elseware.

    Should stay here and vote all these loosers out get our country back, cement the channel tunnels up, in the end the top and bottom is they do not want us there like we dont want them. (my thoughts before the shells start flying).:Laughing:
