At a time of the impending collapse of the Eurozone, when our Armed Forces are being decimated in the name of austerity cuts whilst the rest of the public sector evades taking any pain, with the threat of Islamic terror attacks on the UK never higher, it’s reassuring to see that we have a Prime Minister who has his finger on the pulse..
“Britain’s biggest supermarkets are today given an ultimatum by the Prime Minister: Radically reduce the number of plastic bags you hand out by choice, or I will force you to by law. David Cameron warns that unless stores deliver ‘significant falls’ over the next 12 months, they could either be banned outright from giving out single-use bags or be legally required to charge customers for them. The Prime Minister says it is ‘unacceptable’ that the number of single-use carrier bags rose last year by 333million – a 5 per cent increase from the previous year. Environmental campaigners say the bags, used for only 20 minutes on average, take up to 1,000 years to degrade.”
Phew – am I relieved to hear Cameron deal with this issue. It’s been giving me wakeless nights..
