Sleaford Wants To Get Rid Of Plastic Bags

Sleaford Town Council has decided to join the ranks of the far-left environmentalists. They have decided that Sleaford should become the first plastic bag-free town in Lincolnshire. Town Mayor, Jack Collings, insists the time is right for a blitz on plastic bags.

Now this is not a problem if it is simply just a cost cutting measure however from the tone of the Council, it is more of a green thing as this sentence from the Echo suggests: ‘The town council has taken up the challenge to ban all plastic bags and hopes to encourage shoppers to go for greener, more reusable options’.

I find this an absolute disgrace!! Sleaford Town Council clearly do not understand that there is no such thing as man-made climate change and that getting rid of plastic bags will only inconvenience the public and not actually do anything to ‘save the planet’.

Actually the more I think about it, the more I am beginning to believe that this measure is only about screwing the public! Instead of putting energy and resources into making bio-degradable bags the ‘powers at be’ have decided to get rid of plastic bags and force everyone to use their manky old bags. This is clearly the wrong decision. But I should not be surprised because whenever councils have to make a decision about anything they always make the wrong decision.

Liberal Democrats in Sleaford are little more than Socialists. They are even excluding the oppposition from meetings.

The Liberal Democrats in Sleaford want to waste money on a new building at a massive cost Given that the cost of two toilets was over £100,000 this will cost millions.

They can't even run a market without a loss. The Eastgate Car Park they own has empty places sold at a discount to season ticket holders. These are not available to other users as they did not work out that on anyday of the week a large number are not required.

They are rather slow with the plastic bags. They fail to notice most people go to the supermarket in cars. Typical Lib Dems they avoid the real issue. What is needed is a good delivery service by the shops. Better use of resources, jobs and enterprise.

The Lib Dems are a useless party.

They are indeed a useless and incompetent party. But Liberal Democrats tend to be some of the weirdest and strange people you meet, so I am not surprised.
