Nope just 'gobby' youths. Unless they're all descendants of cowboys from the old wild west.
Coincidentally TB is actually in the news, with new drug resistant TB posing an increasing risk and old fashioned TB killing millions:
We can't kid ourselves that TB isn't a problem for us all:
"With ease of international travel, and increased rates of MDR
tuberculosis in eastern Europe, central Asia, and elsewhere, the threat
and range of the spread of untreatable tuberculosis is very real," the
"One of the report's authors, Prof Alimuddin Zumla, said: ""It's a
growing problem in London and a huge, huge problem in Europe - it's in
our backyard at the moment."
This will be khat. Apparently Clapham Junction is the biggest distribution centre for it in the UK. It is popular among the Somalis in Wandsworth. They get stoned on it but its use is not against the law apparently
This has come up on here before. Yes it is considered cultural and Police were asked not to harrass youngsters by referring to it.

Another good reason to re-visit research & practical use of phages
In the 1970s I went to Birmingham for an interview at the university. I caught a bus from New Street station to Edgbaston. There were large notices on the bus about spitting being prohibited. I was horrified. I had travelled to school in S London by bus for years and never seen anyone spit let alone a notice on the subject. It put me off Birmingham totally.

Latest spitting news (from Finland)
Three boys competing to spit on each other over a bus shelter, running around. Other travellers stand stoically in the icy wind
Another warmer day, ice & snow melting rapidly, only real problem is the masses of grit & several months dog mess appearing all at once!
The last time some under-civilised, ill-bred scum-male spat in a bus-stop I stood in, the wind blew his sputum onto my boot. Emboldened by the rest of the queue, I wiped my boot down his trouser-leg. He accepted the rebuke, which surprised me. I had already located and opened the Swiss army knife in my bag just in case.
It disgusts me more than I can say. Can someone come up with something more repulsive? Wiping yer **** on my bedroom curtains is a very poor second.
I find pissing in the vicar's tea is often received with less than christian vocabulary.
cyolba, not afraid to ask where the loo was
Might surprise me, cyolba; wouldn't disgust me.
