    Mentioning William Morris would be appropriate at this point too, he was an acknowledged leading theorist and practitioner within the group.

    Here, for those with short memories, is Mayhew on the subject:

    The "pure" gatherer, after he has been his rounds, makes the best of his way to some tanner in Bermondsey, to whom he is in the habit of selling the article. He sells it to the tanner by the stable bucketful, and gets from 8d. to 10d. per bucket for it. It is used for the purpose of cleansing sheep and calf skins after they are taken out of the "lime-pits." A man generally picks up about a bucketful in the course of the day. My informant earned last week 5s. 2d., and the week before about 6s.; and these he believes to be a fair sample of the earnings of the class. He has been at the calling about four years.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Excellent detail .
    How soon before we reintroduce such a collection method ?

    See US cities - San Fran plus Los Angeles in particular--- for the appalling amount of 'pure' on the streets .

    Why is it always left wing controlled authorities ?

    Because the right wingers take their dogs to the liberal neighborhoods for their walks.

    I can attest to that here.
    The neighborhood across the road from us is pretty well entrenched trumpers. and they alway walk their dogs across the road into the county open space next to our house to let their dogs dump in our space.

    Good to see you relax and bring some light hearted banter to the table .

    Fortunately The Donald is moving to better control these Sanctuary Cities before they all become refuse mounds made up from the homeless , discarded drug syringes and tons of human excrement .

    America deserves this swamp clean .
