Having moved here and returned a few times, the amount of litter in the UK is insane, looks as messy as NYC can do.

Same here although the only litter I remember seeing in the late 70's was bog rolls being chucked on the pitch from the Town end!
Remember those days well, no good having a shit on a British Rail train on a Saturday, unless you brought your own paper. Moon Moon

It's one of the first things I notice after pulling off the ferry at Dover.  So different the other side of the Channel.
Littering is a British disease, and I'll never understand why so many tolerate it here.  For a country that tends to take environmental matters seriously in general, it's rather surprising.

Interesting blog post on the BMJ site from Stephen Reicher and John Drury, two of the behavioural scientists who's work on SPI-B feeds into SAGE, which I think gives considerable weight to theakston's and Panda Paws' scepticism/reluctance about the introduction of "vaccine passports" as a way of opening things up and whether it would help or hinder the roll out
