Charge is not a problem

I can’t understand anyone having a problem with the the 5p levy on plastic bags, which it is hoped in time will cut down the number in circulation by 70%. They blight our streets, parks, rivers and beaches.

I also can’t understand the mentality of the person who abandons a half eaten takeaways complete with plastic fork and half drank bottle of pop on a park bench next to a litter bin in Mowbray Road park – left for someone else to clean up.

I think HM Government and the backers of Clean up Britain have their work cut out.
