Dutch troops in Pakistan say mocked by drunk Brits

`Dutch troops helping earthquake survivors in Pakistan have complained that while they are subject to an alcohol ban, Spanish and British soldiers laugh at their austerity and turn up drunk at their campfire.

“We were told before we arrived that alcohol was banned in this country or else very difficult to get hold of and we accepted this,” one soldier told the Dutch daily De Telegraaf.

“The Spanish drive around with cars full of Heineken … and the English laugh at us when they show up at our campfire drunk,” another Dutch soldier said.’
