Welcome and failte romhat to the Northern Ireland plastic bag tax hurray! It’s not law yet but it better be: We need a new clean beautiful image for Northern Ireland.
However much or little money it raises, it is good news for the hundreds of thousands of NI people that hate the things. Yuk yuk yuk.
Whatever the political motives might be, dear MLAs, Mother Earth deserves a break from these toxic monstrosities which have been so carelessly given away by shops, supermarkets and takeaway for so long.
Let’s VANISH plastic bags and rubbish from our world. And Happy Christmas all. Let’s not WASTE it…
and hooray for NI journalist Liam Clarke who’s NOT going to pay 15p for a bag.
