Time for a mass smoke-in outside DEFRA.

And for why? Because of this.

Those A Grade minds under the tutelage of Owl Magnet have come up with this really, really, smart idea:

"Litter created by employees around their workplaces, including discarded cigarette ends, could become the responsibility of businesses to clean up. Defra proposals, published for consultation today, would widen the range of premises which face Street Litter Control Notices to include all types of eating and drinking venues and office buildings. This would give local authorities the power to require the occupiers or owners to clear up litter in the immediate area of their premises, including that created by their customers, and to install disposal facilities or risk a fixed penalty notice of up to £110".

Because after all, the litter found near an office or other commercial establisment could only come from its users, couldn't it?

DEFRA's adddress is Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs, Nobel House, 17 Smith Square, London SW1P 3JR

Doesn't DEFRA have anything better to fucking do? Like cull our feathered friends with Bird flu or question David Miliband for the amount of money it costs him to run his blog, or maybe this is how there going to pay for it???
