Thanks Grandma, Great Grandma, and Great Grandpa

. . . for leaving the old country so your children and their children and their children, etc., could have a better life.

Seriously, this is some low-end Third World sh!t that's going on in the Old Country, and the people of The Boot should be embarrassed:

Last month the European Commission took legal action against Italy over the thousands of tonnes of uncollected waste, saying it posed serious health and environmental risks through the spread of disease and through pollution of air, water and land.
