I am genused to see that Nanny's chums in Milton Keynes Coucnil have become so enraged with the blight of disgarded chewing gum on the streets of MK that they intend to ban it and fine people £80 for depositing it on the streets akin to the rules in Singapore (although there you can be flogged as well for leaving it on the pavements).
All well and dandy, except that if you read what is being considered it appears to be a tad more heavy handed than simply fining people for littering the streets with gum.
After8, part of Milton Keynes city centre management, is considering banning it and using "gum police" to enforce the ban. As per the Huffington Post:
"This would be bigger because it will be introduced across the whole of Central Milton Keynes over a one to two mile radius. We are still looking into how we would enforce it but we are getting lots of positive feedback on social media. Whether it means there will be gum police, or a different employee taken on to enforce the gum ban, we are looking into it."A "slight" overreaction wouldn't you say, given that there are already anti littering laws in place?
