‘Other People’ shouldn’t eat burgers on public transport

The Green taliban hypocrites?will be campaigning for this here soon…mark my words.

Here are some letters to the editor of The Telegraph:

SIR ? The chomping, and smell, from certain members of the public who travel on public transport and gorge on fast food (Letters, December 26) can be overwhelming, not only on trains but also on buses.

They leave a large amount of discarded packaging and uneaten food. I nearly had an accident recently, slipping on a half-eaten burger on a bus.

Isn?t it about time that a campaign was launched to impose a ban on eating on public transport, to mirror such prohibitions in other major European cities?

SIR ? I agree about the repellence of people eating in railway carriages. I commute from east Kent to London every day, and on the return journey, thanks to the close proximity to Platform 2 at Victoria of a fast food chain, passengers are often stricken with an appalling smell of burgers.

On one occasion I had to move carriages when three burger-eaters sat next to me. I?m not the only passenger who has this problem, I have discussed it with many others who agree with me.

But how is it that the consumers cope with the smell? Is it neutralised by eating the burger?
