Carrier bag tax.

Something strange is going on.
Since the introduction of the pet_owners_who_clear_ up_ their_ pet_ poo tax, the super markets have strangely been supplying stronger bags for this 5p tax that they see nothing from.
Now how is it that they could never afford to supply these thicker stonrger bags before?
Why is it that now they're having to charge the 5p clearup pet poo tax on the bags, can they suddenly afford to supply better bags?
Something about these bags stinks... and it isn't the pet poo inside them  Cheesy
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Don't believe I've seen any dog owner use a carrier bag for poo.

Re: Carrier bag tax.

When we had a BIG dog  ( Bernese Mountain Dog, and later Chow Chow) I would take my "long handled poop scoop" with me... the "business end" was always wrapped in a carrier bag.... and when it was used, the "business" was disposed of in same carrier bag... then the carrier bag was replaced....
the linky shows the type I had..  http://www.comparestoreprices.co.uk/dogs/unbranded-long-handle-poop-scoop.asp
the pic below  shows the preferred method...

I've always used Tesco nappy sacks. Cost is about 35p a thousand!!
And those were used for my last four Great Danes!  Cheesy

Along with a few other topics as well, none of that official French language, Latin or similar stuff where I went to school, mostly Metalwork, Woodwork, Art, RE, and maths, still can't fathom how a + b = c
Still I do try.
