Campaign against Spitting

As I stated previously, there is a frightening increase in the number of TB cases.

You would think under these circumstances the “Nanny Government” would take action against spitting.

Are children taught in schools not to spit?

This is not a racist comment but a statement of fact. Spitting is acceptable practice in some cultures. When people from those cultures come to live in this country, they bring their cultural norms with them.

The Government and schools need to run public information and education programs highlighting the health risks caused by spitting, and the plain fact that it is socially unacceptable.

There is a campaign to eradicate racism from sport, how about having a similar campaign against spitting.
