When the boot is on the other foot

(Apologies for the blizzard of cliches as post headlines)

The British abroad, doncha just love 'em (Short term link only):

"British students in Alicante have more problems integrating in public schools than pupils of any other nationality, a new study has found. Language and cultural differences are mostly to blame, according to the NGO Orihuela- Alicante Migration, which published the study based onfigures from the Valencia region’s education department. Sociologists...rote that British students “resist the opportunities of exchange with other nationalities and cultures” more than others".

I think I might be excused a hollow laugh.

Depressingly unsurprising. No doubt many of the parents will wonder why their kiddy-winks can't be taught in English...

It is a source of perpetual irony that the "types" who constantly moan about how this country ain't what it used to be are the most likely to export themselves to foreign climes to mess up someone else's paradise.

Isn't it just? The part of France I am best acquainted with (BZH) is suffering a plague of newly resident Brits who expect everything to be done for them in English. Or so my sources tell me.
