Well that's sad...
Bill Phillips: It is and it is also very annoying!

We seem to be accelerating down that road, Bill...hardly anything is repairable these days.
Bill Phillips: That is the problem and if it is it costs as much as buying a new one!

Ghastly in the extreme

Bill Phillips: Almost every day Lisl...this was in Bristol on our walk

Bad enough that stuff that would be useful to others gets chucked out, worse that it is dumped in the countryside.
Bill Phillips: Landfill tax has made things even worse. A country lane near us was completely blocked by a fly tipper. Luckily nobody crashed into it!
I love Lonnie Donnegan! I don't like our throwaway society.
Bill Phillips: I never realised Lonnie was other than popular in the UK!

What a shame, we just seem to assume built in obsolescence these days.
Bill Phillips: Trouble is it costs as much to repair something as it does to replace it
My step mum's a refuse technician
she wears the private company's logo and cap
she wears protective clothing
and she's just bought 50% of her housing association flat.

Keep up with the times man!
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha very good !
Sadly this sort of thing is countrywide!! Did you see the pictures of the Venice canals last week drained of water because of very low tides, there was all sorts laying in the bottom of them!
Bill Phillips: I didn't but it doesn't surprise me

I remember the Lonnie Donegan song. I'm always surprised that prams are cast aside like this; they are expensive items from what I know.
Bill Phillips: They cost a lot of money!!

Did the baby get thrown out as well?
Bill Phillips: Probably
