SPIT­TING MAD

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Thornton on thursday -

The pic­tures of chew­ing gum all over the re­vamped Cathe­dral Square are truly dis­gust­ing. Polic­ing the gum spit­ters would be ex­pen­sive and dif­fi­cult, and no doubt it is a prob­lem in towns and cities across the coun­try. Surely the time has come to add a duty on the sale of pack­ets of chew­ing gum in the same way as there is on booze on fags. That money could be fun­nelled back to coun­cils to pay for clean­ing up.
