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 on the party by Camp Cunliffe because one of his supporters wrote this letter to the DomPost today (backing Cunliffe) – the writer, Victoria Davis, is this plastic bag campaigner from Takaka. With friends like that….David, with friends like that?
And this advertisement demonstrates why a total ban might present certain challenges.
