Someone’s found ‘absolute peak Lib Dem’
Polly Mackenzie, former right hand woman to Nick Clegg, is naturally very excited about the government’s new crusade against plastic. Quite right too.
Except in claiming credit for the Lib Dems in pushing through the original 5p plastic bag charge when they were in coalition with the Tories, she had this to say.

You genuinely get the impression they think this is smart politics, not being incredibly callous.

Except it wasn’t quite the end of the story.
PS the benefit sanction turned out to be illegal and never went ahead. Ha Ha.

I guess they sensed the tightening of benefit sanctions wouldn’t get through. Which apparently it didn’t. So… good work Lib Dems then.

yes, let’s rely on the savvy political foresight of the Lib Dems, who lost 85% of their seats in one election

Still, hurray for no plastic bags, right?
