London holds fascination to any tourist, a jungle of things-to-do. Leicester holds less but rubbish from the first, Pit Bulls from the second combine to tell us that perhaps British society might be touching rock bottom!
Now that was a hard-hitting account. It's funny how Europe is generally thought of as the most civilized part of the world. Even a recent survey has declared Tokyo as the less "eco-minded city", but as far as I can remember it's way cleaner than most of the European major cities. And Singapore is also famous for its policies concerning this aspect.
Maybe it is just time to speak less and act earnestly. By not throwing litter all over the place we do not only show our concern for ecological issues, we show our respect for ourselves and those around us.
By the way, what is the litter fine in UK?
Thanks for the comment - I had a quick look for fines for litter and the Uk gov website tells me that the maximum fine is 2500 Pounds - I wonder if they have ever made anybody pay? Would be interesting to see but I doubt it - too busy fining cars for speeding as they are easier to catch - humans don't have license plate numbers on their T-shirts!

That is really sad! i mean , just think what it is gonna be in 10 years if things keep on going like this. No fine would be able to solve things! and what is there to do about it?
p.s "humans don't have license plate numbers on their T-shirts!", as well as they do not have a sense of limit.
Leicester is quite possible is nice City.
I've lived there for the whole 18 years of my life.
It really is a nice place with so many different ethnic groups and a fantastic culture. Most are very welcoming.
Yes it may be slightly littered...but the local council HAS been tryign to change that and over the past 3 years ive seen improvement.
Leicester really is a lovely place...with a number of local landmarks, and many firsts.
You'll soon see what I mean.
I love Leicester...and I'm moving house soon, but if anything, putting myself into an area closer to the City.
I love Leicester.
It's a truely cool place!
Thats nice but I didn't say that Leicester was littered with garbage - that was London! In Leicester I met a gormless thug with a pit bull terrier who was terrorizing the high street - to which you have made no comment!
I am not mocking Leicester as a place of cultural diversity and acceptance I am simply stating facts as I saw them and being witness to a scene that should never have been played left a sour taste in my mouth!
As you will no doubt see should you visit my blog, that I have stated quite clearly that I loved Leicester Market! There are good sides to Leicester - that was never under question or doubt!
