You can see now how fair British justice is, can't you? Kill three young people, get fined £640. Drop a fag end, get fined £400.
There's a fine deconstruction available of this story about self-aggrandisement at Cambridge Council, if you enjoy good writing.
"The council says butts are difficult for street cleaners to pick up, and they can be dangerous for birds and other wildlife, which pick them up thinking they are food".
Difficult to pick up, eh? Tell you what, take some of that £9 BILLION we give you every year and buy some street vacuum cleaners.
The whole piece is here. Enjoy (or get angry, one of the two).
