The people of this country should not let themselves be brainwashed into thinking their efforts in separating their rubbish is going to save our planet. Just think about all the extra vehicles needed in the removal of this rubbish, the cynical side of me is saying the bin makers are making a good living out of this.

Earlier this year, I reported to The Crow what I had witnessed in India. Well, I have just returned from New York, and separating rubbish is not at the top of their list. In fact, people I spoke to whilst there did not believe me when I told them people in England have been fined for putting the wrong rubbish in the wrong bin.

Another thing I noticed in the Big Apple were petrol prices averaging £2 a gallon, so they are still running their gas guzzlers. And to think our petrol prices are only just below the minimum wage per gallon!
