Bag it

Have your say

What’s all the fuss about plans for a carrier bag tax? As we are told that plastic carrier bags don’t decay naturally and so will survive for millions of years, surely at only 5p each at current prices this is the bargain of the new millennium.

So, let’s all buy a fiver’s worth to last us a lifetime. We can leave them to our children and all our descendants will benefit. No more such bags will be needed and factories will stop making the damned things.
