One thing you have to admit about Gormless – he’s great at trying to grab the headlines.
His latest effort is a ‘report’ on litter.
Apparently he has been rooting through litter and rubbish in the gutter. He has decided that 45% of all litter is cigarette waste. What? Nearly half of all litter is cigarette butts and fag packets? Get the fuck outa there. That has to be a load of bollox.
Walk down any street and you will see the usual collection of used nappies, empty beer cans, newspapers and burger cartons. You will also see cigarette butts, but will they amount to nearly half of all litter? No fucking way.
The only way he could have come up with a figure like that is to somewhat restrict his area of research. He picked a square meter of pavement outside a pub. He probably did it after he was thrown out, blind drunk at closing time.
If he is so worried about cigarette buts on the pavement, then there is a very simple solution – scrap the fucking smoking laws. They haven’t worked anyway, as smoking has increased since the laws were introduced. Nor has there been any improvement in health anywhere. In fact the only things the laws have achieved are to alienate a third of the population, close numerous pubs and force people to smoke on the street.
How about it, Gormless?
Let’s see you do something worthwhile for the first time in your miserable fucking life.
