I reckon it take 10 miles to consume a Bigmac and chips with a coke .Now if McChav were fined 1000 for each piece of pacakging found on the roads they would soon do 2 things .
1 Cut down the amount of boxes & bags .
2 Develope a biodegradeable packing made from corn starch or similar .

This would reduce the litter problem give the foxes another source of food so they leave the pheasants alone and the Local Authority some cash to finance refuse collection and hopefully choke a chav or two who think they can eat the packing !
I think it's far more likely McChavs would start selling everything in unmarked brown paper bags.

With the announcement that we could be charged by the weight of rubbish in our bins, prepare for this problem getting worse (Fly tipping comes to mind!!)

I was thinking the same thing yesterday. It's being left to the local councils to set the limit. Ours here is so greedy that I suspect the limits will be set unfairly low just to generate cash.

Police are now starting to use remote drones with CCTV cameras to tackle disorder and anti social behaviour.

Great - a chance to tackle gangs and chavs mugging old ladies? Not quite - watch the video footage and the Police mainly mention people riding quad bikes and scamblers - and no doubt the odd Land rover driver as well...........

Big Brother still a popular TV show???
should be fun for the kids with air rifles to shoot down!
