    This is one jihad we can all support. A group of kids in Small Heath, Birmingham have declared a jihad against litter. The campaign, called Clean Medina, kicks off this weekend. Heh, brilliant. They have a blog here.

      Good- if it spreads countrywide then every stroll will not be spoiled by ‘Dallas Fried Chicken’ and ‘Asia kebab’ boxes.

      reclaim the streets, reclaim the vocabulary, reclaim the particular religious ethic.

      iA hope it works.

      Could we burn effigies of litter?

      Of course, if we aren’t careful we may wind up with “War on Landfill”

      That is brilliant!

      Birmingham doesn’t do much landfill, they have a “Power from Waste” facility at Tyseley which deals with a lot of their rubbish. I think they only landfill less than 20% of their waste.

      It’s a very, very good idea in an area that badly needs such ideas. All power to their elbows and they will need it.

      Ugh. Nothing to criticise in a bit of litter-picking, but couldn’t they call it something else that doesn’t have the unfortunate associations with murder, hate and religious bigotry that ‘jihad’ does?
