Telegraph | Opinion | The Young British Male is a loser: "The Young Bristish Male has never learnt how to carry out a proper conversation with a fellow YBM, let alone with a girl, let alone a foreign girl. Since the Industrial Revolution, the YBM has taken his pleasure only in the company of other YBMs, and that pleasure is rooted in taciturn, heavy drinking.
The Industrial Revolution was responsible for Albufeira. The great migration to the cities of massed ranks of young men doing factory work, bad weather, early dusks, and puritanism driving alcohol out of the house and into the bar, led to the phenomenon of exclusively male drinking behind closed pub doors.
