Tim Chivers bemoans the charge of 5p for a plastic supermarket bag on the grounds that people are being asked to do the right thing for the wrong reasons.
If he’s not careful he’ll lose his lefty socialist credentials. Getting people to do what socialists want regardless of reason or rightness is what socialism is all about.
So well done to the Barclay Brothers, whatever they’re putting in the water at Telegraph seems to be working.
But let’s cut to the real scandal here. The charge is 5p. That’s disgusting. We get charged 22c. As ever the British get it easy and still complain!
