The last Straw?

A little while ago I went for a walk along the north bank of the river Thames from Coal House Fort to the World’s End (it’s a pub) just past Tilbury Fort where I had a very nice lunch and two pints of Abbott. Along the way I noticed a very large quantity (the path was covered in them) of 3 inch (that’s about 75mm in Euro nonsense) hollow blue or white plastic strips which at first I thought were discarded wiring insulation. They were not. They were the remnants of Q-Tips (the two ends being bio-degradable cotton). Just washed up and deposited on the shore and the path at high tide.
