I cannot agree more. I think that this is a national disgrace and comparisons with other countries are shocking. My own particular bete noir is chewing gum. Look beneath your feet wherever you go to see the dalmation effect which is often evident both visually and tactilely. The further bonus of the material having spent some time in someone's mouth before being so carelessly cast aside really finishes it off for me!

Surely the polluter pays principle could be enacted here? A blanket chewing gum tax on all consumers is a pretty clumsy instrument but it's probably the best we'll do.
