Is litter in Britain really that bad?
YES!!! Well compared to Your country...some of it is because we have more people in less space, so it piles up more easy and gets noticed quicker...some of it is because in big cities people are encouraged to either take litter home...or drop it (the councils clear up the shyte) this is because in cities provisions for litter collections are deliberately sparse.

Bins Mean Bombs

Its a way of eliminating a hidden place that could be taken advantage of.

No, Irish Travelers. Gypsies came from the Indian subcontinent in the Middle Ages. They were mistakenly thought to have come from Egypt - hence "Gypsies". Irish Travelers are ethnically Irish but have an itinerant lifestyle similar to Gypsies.
