I HAPPENED to observe two local schoolboys standing in my neighbour’s drive having a smoke.

This I have not got a problem with, if they wish to smell and die young it is their choice.

However, what I do object to is this filthy habit of constantly spitting, one lad felt he had to spit his smoke-contaminated saliva onto our pavement after every drag.

Heaven knows what his front room carpet is like.

This disgusting habit has now it seems been accepted as the norm. Most of the sports stars do it all the time and such a lovely image it projects in 3D, HD on our tellys.

Let’s please have a law with some kind of fine to try and stop this disgusting, filthy, unnecessary addiction.
