Similar perhaps to the Portuguese " thicko" lorry driver who killed an entire family of of six in Cheshire by breaking the law in using his mobile  while driving?
If a lorry driver killed 6 whilst using his mobile phone, then I, personally, would label him as much more than a 'thicko'.  I would put him inside, and throw away the key.

I'm not surprised that you choose to miss the point!!

According to VS, I am racist because I said that PROBABLY yes PROBABLY, the person driving the wrong way on the wrong carriageway of the A22 would be someone who normally drives on the left, whilst here we drive on the right.

Drunk driver on the wrong carriageway.

How simple does it get?

I have no interest in your xenophobia.  The report is clear.  It does not refer to the nationality of the driver, as I said.

You have just done another Dunblane escalation.

I do wonder if your "news" would have been deemed worthy of posting if it wasn't for the fact that the "drunk" was most likely a "Britto Thicko"??
I doubt it!!
And you accuse me of xenophobia

Not at all.
You obviously feel that it is a worthwhile exercise.

How many countries drive on the 'wrong' side of the road?  How many of those visit the Algarve?  I don't know about the Irish.

But it still suggests a Britto Thicko.

If it looks like a donkey, smells like a donkey, and brays like a donkey, then my money is on donkey.

Oh Dear.  I don't know if you know that I often support my country of choice, and so I understand why you do.  But there has to be a bit of common sense.

I sometimes still go to the wrong door of my car, but I never actually get into it, or drive on the wrong side of the road.

As an expat in France I am pleased that you love Portugal.  It is always a whole new ball game.  And people like you and me aren't hide bound.

I visited the Algarve three times during the Two Glorious Revolutions.  There were Two you know, during which the real horror stories reinvented themselves, and sadly are still of some importance.

The oldest of The judiciary are corrupt.  And still adhere to The Salazar Regime.  Nothing will be done until they rae all gone.

You have decided to jump to a prejudiced conclusion, based on zero evidence.  It's a bit like those Daily Mail readers who assume every act of terrorism is by a Muslim, or every person who sticks a knife into another person must be black.

And yet you're happy to label a drunk behind the wheel a "thicko".  Bloody bizarre.  IMO.

A friend of ours soent quite a long time in Germany. After his return he was driving along a quiet road one day when he saw a lorry voming towards him on his side of th road. As they got closer to each other his nerbe broke and he switched to the other side of the road. The lorry driver's nerve went at the same moment and he switched too.They avoided each other in the end and our friend suddenly realised it was him who had been driving on the wtong side.
