Clean for the Queen

 has a better ring to it than 'Scrub the Streets, Peasants,' as the International Business Times tells us.

Seriously,here it is. http://www.cleanforthequeen.co.uk/home/2365

Everybody look busy! A woman who has never had to empty a bin in her life is coming!

No, here's the answer;  as the government is constantly trying to tell us, don't expect something for nothing. If you really want clean streets as a mark of respect for our monarch on her 90th birthday, you hire street cleaners and litter pickers and you show respect for their efforts by paying them for what they do.

Respect all or respect none.

It would be better if people could learn to clean up after themselves and dispose of their waste properly but that won't happen. 60 years on and Keep Britain Tidy still doesn't work.

We currently have separate recycle bins,while the main all-purpose bin tends to be much smaller, and plastic bags now cost. I am hoping this indicates more mindfulness around the subject.

Rubbish is still an issue around our park spaces and streets though, and I am all for people cleaning up their own litter. But people going out and scrubbing streets for the queen is a bit too medieval for my liking. Keeping the streets clean for ourselves would be more like it.

It'll be something like
What's the point of employing peasants you can't shoot?
