Shoppers steal trolleys over 5p bag charge
Even though the vast majority of the UK has been able to cope with the 5p plastic bag charge for a while now, England it seems, has been having some issues with it.
Mystifyingly, it became front-page news and 'chaos' was promised, as well as people vowing to do all manner of thunderously pointless protests.
With that, we go to social media, where people have been bragging about stealing shopping trolleys, rather than pay five whole pence for a plastic bag. Some people are STICKING IT TO THE MAN by going through the rigmarole of swiping trolleys, rather than taking a rucksack they already own, or perhaps using one of the hundreds of plastic bags they've got in another plastic bag under the sink.
See for yourself.
Someone else decided to do the same. They paid £1 for a trolley, stole it, wheeled it all the way home, got in, quickly tidied the kitchen up, took numerous photos, chose the best one, did a slight edit on the photo with their phone's in-built editing software, then actually uploaded it to the internet, to show how indignant they are about the 5p plastic bag tax.
Of course, one Tesco has felt the need to put security tags on their Bags For Life, because people can't get their heads or rage around the new charges.
Honestly. Will England ever cope again, and recover from this awful, awful injustice? And will Wales and Scotland ever stop laughing about it all?
