Yeah, that'd teach 'em. And the rest of the world would piss themselves.Let's go the whole hog and march on Parliament I'm ready and willing.

No comment needed I feel.What is left of democracy in Britain is rapidly disappearing before our eyes. Thankfully, we still have the independent media such as the Daily Mail, who voice the true concerns of this country.

Every day collections!Has to be a winner the Mail. Our tory borough has a twice-a-week collection- but what happened to every day collections? Seems they quietly disappeared with the second post.

A bit dramatic. If you want to know what is or isn't recyclable, try reading the leaflet you twunt.Firstly no one seems to know what is or is not recyclable. Then we need a Pied Piper for each authority because sure as hell the vermin will increase thousand fold along with it come all kind of health issues because of all the gasses escaping from the rotting foods, putting extra strain on our over stretched National Health. What I am saying is it means melt down for us all.

Yeah, those bad old medieval times with their fortnightly refuse collections.Our country lanes and beauty spots will become dumping grounds for peoples household bin rubbish if this is allowed to happen. We are already a nation of litter louts and this will take us over the edge back to medieval times. And the councils will still have the job of clearing it up!

They're Mail readers though. They read a comic book every day.IanC wrote:V for Vendetta is based on a mere "comic book". No way DM readers would watch something like that.
Fine analysis, absolutely the wrong conclusion.Max 'Hitler' Hastings wrote: However, the worst cause of rubbish is modern societies being incapable of mending or re-using.
All of us experience the frustration of taking a broken gadget to a high-street shop, only to be told it is ~"not economically repairable".
Every day we throw away millions of disposable nappies, countless tons of gratuitous packaging, redundant televisions and video-recorders, computers and iPods.
Nothing could do more to curb our plague of rubbish than for us to rediscover the lost art of mending things.
There seems a strong case for penalising manufacturers and retailers who generate huge quantities of unnecessary packaging, and who make it so hard to repair their products.
What are we, the shoppers and consumers, supposed to do when confronted with the huge chunks of foam cushioning which surround every electronic toy, the acres of bubble-wrap and cardboard that encase every home delivery?
Last week, we received some meat which we had ordered. Perhaps ten pounds weight of beef arrived in a Styrofoam box measuring two feet by 18 inches by nine, each serving in an individual cardboard box. It all looked pretty, but the packaging half-filled our wheelie-bin.
It is obviously vital to cut household waste. But the way to start is by obliging industry and services to stop overloading us with rubbish, not by axing the public services which take it away from our homes.
I've not gone overboard with slagging off the article, it depends on how "balanced" the moderator working today is feeling!The cardboard box half filled your bin? You know what the magic of cardboard boxes is? Attack them with a knife and it takes up a fraction of the space.
Interesting analysis of the problem of people not fixing things and creating too much rubbish, but surely the obvious solution to that problem is to fix things, rather than expecting other people to do anything about it.
She may actually be right - my Tory borough (Westminster) has twice-weekly collections, inlcuding Sundays, and weekly recycling, and I could well believe it used to have daily collections...Has to be a winner the Mail.
