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.

We call that "A Cream Tea" because its usually what one should eat when one has "High Tea" which one is supposed to take a 3pm

Imagine if you will a large stately manor house, with a big Terrace Garden, Madam is sitting at a stone table, (in a long flowing dress) its the middle of summer and she has a white lace lined brollie (to protect her from the sun) the children are picking daisies...and the Man of the house (Dressed in a suit and waistcoat, with a monocal, and a pocket watch on a golden chain) is sitting in an Armchair on the Veranda, smoking his cigar with a shot of brandy in hand.

The Butler appears with a sidekick, The Butler carries a large tray, on which is some bone china cups, a large teapot and strainer for the leaves, anda jug of fresh milk. His Sidekick carries a large plate on which are scones and Jam and Cream.

Its Three O Clock, and the Victorian family are about to take a spot of tea in the Garden

Not sure I'd be able to tell the difference. I havent met any Travelers or Gypsies...but they are a bloody nightmare...I have personal experience of seeing what they were capable of though
