I’m happy to say that in one respect at least the UK leads the world: the proportion of the U15′s having sex. According to UNICEF we storm ahead with 38%, way ahead of our nearest rivals the repressed Swedes (figure 5.2d). We also do best at getting drunk, too (5.2b), though we only just beat the sober Finns.
Of course, as far as the report goes, these count as negatives not positives. But how do the children count it?
