Quoting tway

Quoting jam

Reason for the lack of rubbish bins dates back to the 70's when the IRA was bombing quite heavily in and around London and England.

I'd heard the reason that bins were removed had to do with bombing, but they have to expect people will put their trash somewhere! I must have looked like a poor, bewildered tourist carrying my garbage around in a daze, muttering "but, but, but..."

I know that you're from Canada, tway ... BUT you could've just looked like an American tourist

Just a thought, but if there is a law against trash cans, maybe some caring Londoners should get together every now and again and pick it up. You could make a party of it! Some easy going people, a bag and stick each...and after a few hours you've got a lovely park again.

everyday?
for how long?

btw - that might be against the law. And the street cleaners might be chasing off the group for sending them back into unemployement :)

The tourists should do it. They're going to being walking around anyway so they could tidy up along the way

you do know i am sure that those links won't do any good in terms of search engine rankings and stuff like that don't you?

if robots are not blocked from spidering the page - sooner or later they will find that page

Although spiders might find that page, they will only follow the clickable links, which is only one. So, in essence the rest of the text is totally useless. On top of that, it's against our terms and conditions as well as it clearly being spam and could therefore damage TP so I'd appreciate it if you delete it.

Thanks,

Sam

Do American tourists carry their garbage around? Or did you mean the dazed look? I ended up with a pocket-full of wrappers and an empty can tucked under my arm...
