1st of all should we be using plastic bags that the council is trying to ban, probably not.
Yet again the councils mind set that they are the ones to make laws on what are really stage or federal issues shows the pig headed stupidity of our councillors.
I wrote several blogs on this issue some time back they speak of the missed opportunity our council has chosen, their lack of vision, the stupidity of the plan and the complete lack of a grasp of reality thinking that banning businesses in fremantle from using plastic bags, would actually achieve any real outcome. Its another cheap tacky feel good move from council, with lots of $ spent (wasted) with nothing achieved apart from our Mayor getting his face in print or on TV, no problems right the rate payer is paying.
Who the hell is council to say who and who doesnt get punished by their bag ban, leaving many business in Freo even worse off than they where before under freo councils business killing ideas.
The Fremantle council is brilliant at throwing rate payers money away at these failing ideas. One is a carbon free school project nothing to do with rate w/payers money. The endless money pit called, one planet or its failed solar dump. One thing that is sure they are fancy and free with our money, while real results are few and far between.
Its amazing main stream media doesn’t pay more attention to the cash burning projects our councils get up too.
