In the national school I had lectures on the evils of littering.
Just like everyone else. Ever Since.
But now I was in the national school - ahem - back in the late 1950s - i.e. in the middle of the last century.
Plus ca change and all that.
It didn't work then and it's not gonna work now.
The fact is that we have to pay people to feckin' pick the dirt, paper, gum wrap, fast food containers, Chinese takeaway containers, condoms, etc., that other people leave on the ground behind them.
This is the reality behind the IBAL litter survey.
Someone has gotta pickup after the ignorants.!
If you think you can persuade everyone to be a litter warden then you know little about human nature.
