Mentioned in litter dispatches

There was debate about litter at Glenurquhart Road yesterday with Lib Dem Leader Michael Foxley wanting to see litter cleared up in the Highlands. He was all in favour of big fines. The P&J quotes a response from Graham Marsden however, it's not often we hear anything our Nairnshire members say reported but here's a quote from today's paper:

'Often the people who would be affected by the notion of fines are people who really have no money. Then you end up with people being put into prison for short spells and it doesn't achieve very much at all.'

Some sage like comments from Graham. I wonder what he is thinking of as an alternative to a custodial sentence, community service order picking up litter perhaps?
Maybe it's a question to keep up or sleeves for the coming 'Lib Dem hit the streets' Saturday (perhaps they will be picking up the litter!)
