We're having a weekend away in Studland, Poole, to spend some quality time together as we lead such busy lives. We went for a walk along the beach on Saturday morning before breakfast and I was disgusted how much litter there was amongst the sand dunes. For all the campaigning against plastic bags they aren't really the problem, people are. And it wasn't just plastic bags: there were bottles, crisp bags, tissues and all manner of sweet wrappings. It wasn't as if there aren't any bins.

So, rather than spend lots of money on quangos like WRAP we should just rely on the one quango we have had for years, the Keep Britain Tidy campaign and they have a simple message to get across – if you must take it out, take it home.
