Among the many kooky remits at this weekend’s Labour Party conference is a plan by Labour’s grassroots for a total ban on plastic bags.
I hope that nice David Shearer won’t support this. We know that this is being pushed onÂ theÂ party by Camp Cunliffe because one of his supporters wroteÂ this letterÂ to the DomPost today (backing Cunliffe) – the writer, Victoria Davis, isÂ this plastic bag campaignerÂ from Takaka. With friends like that….David, with friends like that?
And this advertisement demonstrates why a total ban might present certain challenges.
