Well, it's another lovely day, so I went for a walk along the canal this morning from Ham bridge to Thatcham station.

All the way from the swing bridge to Monkey Marsh lock is strewn with revolting quantities of litter. It seems to be the remains of about 3 separate BBQ's.
There are empty boxes of lager, beer cans & bottles, plastic coke & cider bottles, choc ice boxes, frozen chicken & burger boxes, charcol boxes, even a half empty tomato ketchup bottle floating by the lock.

It really is a disgusting sight. I can only imagine the type of feral pikey filth that was partying hard there over the weekend.

The canal is a great local resource and a lovely place to go for a wander on a sunny day. It's such a shame to see it utterly spoiled by the TOWIE watching garbage who think it's a great idea to throw their vast quantities of litter everywhere then just bugger off home to their council houses.

There are times when I really do despise humanity.

I pretty much agree with your statement, but sadly I have seen proof that this isn't just a council house tenant phenomena.

True, I'm making an assumption for effect there, I know.

What is almost a certainty, they will be youths or youngsters, if my observations are anything to go by.

Agreed. I have witnessed the same kind of behaviour from young folk in the park. I have no idea what it is that makes people think that it's fine to simply leave the rubbish left over from your lunch on the grass for someone else to clear up.

Obviously, it's not always young people that drop/leave litter. But I have yet to witness anyone under the age of, say, 30 leave the equivalent of carrier bags full of rubbish behind.

It's definitely an upbringing issue. My parents made sure I knew it was unacceptable to drop litter. And even through my teenage years (when one generally does what the **** one wants) I found a bin for my rubbish. I just can't see the logic in it dropping it or leaving it behind.

It is a terrible thought that people have no care for their environment.
It is not youngsters alone. Back in the olden days a gent sold Socialist Worker papers from a fold up stool.
He was a lot older than I, but when he coughed and chucked an empty fag packet in front of me.
I picked it up, popped it on his unsold rags and told him he was a tosser, I felt better for it.
needless to say the packet ended up exactly where it first came to rest and I got a mouthfull from a bloke wiv no teeth.
He will be dead by now, and frankly or shirly. I don't give a "respectful swear word"

Its likely that their parents will be on benefit and that they will be in social housing.

Are you Jeremy Kyle?
You remind me of him.

Just shouting "YOU, YOU'RE SCUM" in people's faces. The joke is most people who watch that are on benefits themselves. As it's in the daytime.

The people that leave this sort of debris behind them have no regard or respect for the environment or any one else around them.
Until the law gets tough then nothing will change.
As fast as the responsible amongst us clear up the crap these morons are throwing it around.
What can you do? If you admonish them you will be attacked, possibly physically and again the law want provide an adequate deterent.

Sort the welfare state, limit benefits and the problem will mend itself. Scrub tax credits.

So assuming someone gives birth at 16, their child would be 14 when they give birth to, in turn, their child.
Your way of thinking is completely illogical, wrong, twisted, and falls perfectly inline with the mindset of a typical Daily Mail reader.

Really, what stereotyping family brought you up? Next you'll be going on about how it's mostly immigrants who commit crimes...

Just like a mail reader? you contradicted yourself. I read the mail, I also read the Express, the Sun, and various others. I have also been known to read the odd forum.

Being a particluar newspaper reader is about as characteristic as saying 'he has long hair and lives in England'. No meaning at all. That said, I agree with your point, (which mine also makes), is that you cannot generalise. If all council tenants were like Andy says, then there would be a simple resolution. Castrate/steralise at 13 and hand the house over so as to be a private occupancy. Problem solved. All of it utter bollox.


Welcome to Germany pre 1945.

The people that do the litter stuff, are also those that drive stupidly, get intyo fights after a beer or fifty over the weekend and attend either Newbury race days or football matches.
See? generalisation is irrational and always dangerous.

The litter idiots, are simply this.. Ignorant, mind blowingly neanderthal, a waste of space and are certainly not showing any respect for others.

I see that all the time. Why do not the authorities take action? Set up a camera or something at the worse spots.
