“Fancy nipping out for a fag mate?”

In a two-pronged bid to both, A) keep the streets of London clear of litter and, B) help us all obtain a definitive answer to one of football’s most divisive quandaries, an environmental charity have come up with an ingenious ruse to satisfy both criteria.

With similar examples going up all around the city of Westminster, Hubbub UK have designed a special ‘vote bin’ for smokers to dispose of their cigarette butts that also allows football fans to cast a vote in the eternal Lionel Messi vs Cristiano Ronaldo debate.

As it happens, it would appear most London smokers are Ronaldo fans…

Bloody ingenious, no?

    This is a great way to isolate and evaluate the opinions of people that make bad choices.

    I’m calling voting bias thanks to all those life-long, diehard, United fans based in London that have never stepped foot inside Old Trafford.

  3. Murray says:


    But I don’t know how they’d curtail voter fraud without enforcement of a “one cigarette, one vote” policy.

    Bloody brilliant. Whereabouts in London is this?

  5. Jarren says:

    ..and I’m calling it a great idea!

    Anything to stop the streets being littered is to be commended.

    More of this, I say!

  6. Phil Morris says:

    This is utterly and fucking disgusting. Like I’m going to take up smoking just to vote! I suppose i could pick cigs from the ground…er….urp…..blechhhh!

  7. Bob says:

    If I passed that I would be tempted to chain smoke 10 right there to sway the vote. I also notice there are a lot of half smoked fags in there. I bet they sparked up again straight after.

    It may help litter but it basically encourages smoking. Nice idea though.
