It's the Daily Mail, so let's use the British, shall we?

Why weren't they sharing with the children? A subdued child is a happy child.

Heamer: Why weren't they sharing with the children? A subdued child is a happy child.

Because they are selfish bastards.

Shoulda put the kids in a kennel before they left anyway.

C'mon it's not like the McGuckins were eating cheeseburgers shirtless on the floor.

Let's get real here, a lot of parents get drunk with their children when they are around. So what made this family so special that it got into the news? I personally don't think you should get drunk when your children are around because who is supposed to be watching them? I think if you are having dinner with wine and your kids are also at the dinner table, that is fine. To get totally shiatfaced is not. That is why if they say your parents are alcoholics you are more than likely to become one also unless someone breaks the habit. Either way hopefully these parents will not do this again.

Just tie your children to the bed and huff paint with hookers like normal people.

Agreed. However, even my parents limited me to half a bottle of Jack per day.

What a massive over-reaction.

Walker: What a shock, they were British.

Nah, they're Irish. I read the FA.

Only 3 beers and had to be hospitalized - Irish are turning into pansies.

Must suck to hate your own brain so much that shutting it down is actually entertainment.

Iberia, where Britons go to reinfantilize themselves. Happily driving potted down the wrong side of the street.

Remind me NEVER to go to Portugal.

Irish? Very well, nothing out of the ordinary there, moving along

.....or coastal Spain, the Balearic islands, Tenerife, Lanzarote, Amsterdam, north France or Cyprus.

Because this happened last time parents were negligent on holiday in Portual and we're sick of hearing about it (new window)

So has it provided you with any entertainment yet?

Sounds more like food poisoning or bad liquor knocked them on their asses. If they weren't driving anywhere and staying at the hotel a couple/few drinks shouldn't be a problem.

Though, both parents drinking is not something I'd ever think was a good idea when a 2 year old is around. They tend to work overtime trying to kill themselves.
 
2008-05-06 12:07:55 PM
As a parent of a two year old I can somewhat sympathize.

Sometimes I want to drink until I pass out.

The incident has caused outrage in Portugal, where the year-long investigation into the disappearance of Madeleine McCann has already raised questions over standards of British parenting.


It just makes sense to judge millions of people based on the actions of two families.

/In that vein of thinking, I have one husband and fifteen sister wives, plus I am mother to 50+ children.
//I am also a crack-smoking, bling-sporting, French manicure-having, Cadillac-driving welfare queen

... PLUS Natasha Richardson and the mother of all wardrobe malfunctions
The 44-year-old actress unveiled a foxy new look and perhaps rather more than she would have liked on the red-carpet at the heavily A-list Superheroes: Fashion And Fantasy Gala in New York

that's right, because "the rest of Ireland" is 3rd world and helped the nazis in WWII.

//let's see who I hook...

I have just one question: Were they behaved?
 
2008-05-06 03:46:12 PM
I read TFA and they are British.

Northern Irish = British (well, unless you happen to be a nationalist/republican and then you claim you are Irish but are happy to take benefits from the British state.)

In any case, if as the article suggest heat stroke and booze tends to equal passing out - hence the lack of actual charges.
 
2008-05-06 04:13:01 PM
Like an Irishman would be sober long enough to make such a distinction...

Kids and vacations do not mix. You might as well stay home, its cheaper and easier. Plus where you gonna get a babysitter? I love my kids dearly but I need a vacation FROM THEM.
