Recession-what recession? Does the photograph below indicate that thereâ€™s a credit crunch?
It could be the recent news indicating that the UK economy may at last be in recovery prompted last nightâ€™s party at the picnic benches on the Wom Brook Walk in Wombourne.
This disgusting scene greeted villagers this morning-regular walkers who passed it expressed disbelief and annoyance that a site of natural beauty-and a designated local nature reserve-should be left in such a condition.Â Unfortunately, this is a familiar scene in the United Kingdom, but paradoxically a rare sight abroad.
The above photograph is an example of what follows when a group of individuals cannot take responsibility for their actions, and is symptomatic of a wider, collective culture of malaise that pervades certain sectors of society at the moment.Â Perpetrators of these acts have no pride in their village, and more worryingly, have no self-respect.
What are the consequences of this?
The majority of us are left to clean up the mess.
