It's the last straw

Plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds are to be banned in England from next year in a bid to further tackle pollution and to protect the environment


Environment secretary Michael Gove confirmed that the ban on the sale of listed items will take effect from April 2020 after a consultation into the move revealed "overwhelming" public support.

Great news, now we can stop worrying about the millions of tons of plastic still being produced. Sorry, but its going to take a lot more than just straws and cotton buds. Roll_eyes

I understand the fish around Britain are up in arms because they won't now have any way of drinking the milkshakes that have missed the politicians and ended up in the sea.

I hear that there has been  a collective sigh of relief from the world's camel population.
