First Conroy wants to censor every internet connection in Australia, now that master of deep thought - Peter Garrett wants to ban plastic bags. If you want a way to hurt the poorest people in society this is a great way to do it. One of the resons our food and nearly everything else in Australia is so cheap is because of plastic and plastic bags. The substitutes will cost more because they will use more resources and energy to made, stored and used. But idiots like Garrett don't really think about things they do what makes them feel good. The only similiar thing in the previous government was that goose who wanted ban incandescent globes, again if you really look at the facts it makes no sense at all.
When people start acting on their emotions and using their feelings to control others everyones quality of life will suffer.
