All Rubbish
On a fleeting visit today, via some well trod tracks, into the Mournes and on to a couple of popular if unimpressive tops, I see that not only have we invited an underclass into our domain but have also embraced it with hips, thighs, bosoms and every other gripping faculty available to us.
Litter, rubbish and other jetsam, strew the land like its own dodgy seed..
Now, given this particular group is neither socially aware nor educationally adept, it should hardly surprise us that it is not equipped to inhabit our more genteel world. Nor would it surprise us that given most of us are retired civil servants, having got here by shutting up and being untroublesome, that we are unlikely to do anything about it.
So we are faced with this question. Do we care or do we not?
