Very shortly, the whole 50-odd million of us who live in England will wake up to find that, if they visit a supermarket, they will have been the victims of a massive robbery, and they will not be able to complain, or alert the authorities, because this particular crime has been perpetrated by Parliament. Courtesy of Nick Clegg, the alleged MP, along with a staunch follow-up crew from the Daily Mail, they ran a campaign to make everyone who shops at English supermarkets BUY the plastic bags at 5p a pop, with an estimated turnover profit of around £90 million, per year.
These pricks who obviously have never been near a supermarket, and thus have never had to carry their own purchases to a car, have built this Tax to hit everyone but them, and its all for such a good cause!
Whether the so-called environment actually needs protecting is, to my mind, a moot point; what with uniformed Council would-be Nazis jumping on someone for dropping fag-ash on the pavement, but the vast majority recycle the damn things anyway, so what’s the point of making us buy them? Are we going to get our money back if we return or re-use them? I doubt it very much!
The Act of Parliament which authorises this wholesale garbage goes into such detail as the thickness of the bags, etc., but the one thing it does not stipulate is of course who is going to be the beneficiary of all this lovely cash. The Act primly states that it (the £90-odd million) should go to good causes, so can’t you see the slavering jaws of the greedy clowns from the scum who run the RSPCA, the RNLI, along with the Oxfam Vultures who endorsed the phone campaigns against those who suffer from Dementia; and all the usual suspects as they hammer at the back doors of Tesco, Sainsburys, and the rest, blood in their eyes at the very thought of all that money going up for grabs!
The solution? Use or recycle old bags; buy long-lasting bags, anything: but don’t give 5p, never mind £5.00, to the slavering herd who will be all over the cash, demanding ever more for their f’#**ing so-called blood-sucking Charities!
