… when Therese Coffey was the ‘Litter Minister’, a National Litter Strategy Working Group was set up. It met once before being binned. Need we say more?

The Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has for years been known as the most utterly useless Ministry in government. When it comes to litter, all it seems to want to do is to look as if it’s doing something.

Let me ask you now to look at this short 90 second video – it’s quite an eye-opener. It was produced by Peter Silverman, who founded the campaigning organisation, Clean Highways. Peter is Britain’s leading expert on the law relating to roadside litter – although, astonish- ingly, DEFRA totally excluded him from the whole process of creating the national anti-litter strategy.
