Egotistical malignity of British youth

I saw more litter in a hundred yards on my return to Britain than I had seen in a thousand miles in Spain.

Britain, Dalrymple points out, is

the dirty man of Europe.

Spanish youth, he says,

while disagreeably noisy, certainly does not behave with the hideous, determined vulgarity of British youth. It does not eat in the street, is not menacing in appearance, nor does it display the egotistical malignity of its British counterpart, which turns almost any social interaction into a potentially violent confrontation.
