This is because we LOVE Britian, it is so Beautiful, we adore zero some-more than going for a travel with a dog around a woods nearby a house. Yet people are set on destroying it. Everytime we go out with a dog we take a bag and collect adult whatever balderdash we come across. There is ssooo many fly tipping. We afterwards have Lefties wanting to tarmac over immature belt to yield unaffordable homes for half of Europe and put windfarms on whatever immature belt we have left. Make a many of a countryside… your childrens childrens will no doubt have to compensate to see it.
