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.
