It started with the Canberra Liberals having a mumble to the Canberra Times about wanting to see the review of the plastic bag ban before the election.
But then the seething fury of all Canberra’s angry old men lifted them up like a raging tide and we now have a media release promising a complete overturn of the plastic bag ban if elected.
ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja today announced that if elected, a Canberra Liberals Government will overturn the ACT Labor/Greens Coalition’s plastic bag ban. Mr Seselja said today’s announcement will give choice back to businesses and consumers.
Now for mine sure it was another embuggerance in this vale of tears achieving not very much at all. But does that 10c at the supermarket or remembering to take a bag with me make any real difference in my life? Not really.
Does this issue really matter to you?
UPDATE 06/08/12 13:55: Simon Corbell is expressing some surprise at Zed’s position considering how mad keen Vicki Dunne has been on banning plastic bags in the past.
