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.
