Minister for Bags

Peter Garrett has finally been allocated a portfolio where he can do and say very little to damage the government or the universe at large. He is now Minister for Bags.

As the Minister for Bags, Garrett will create new opportunities for big business to rip-off-we-little-consumers-and-families-all-over-the-country contribute meaningfully to the social good.

Minister Garrett is looking set to ban plastic bags, and/or introduce a twenty cent charge for each bag.

Either way, a new industry for little doggy-doo (plastic) bags will be created, along with a wider range of options in consumer (plastic) garbage bags.

Nice one Pete.

    Labor's bling boy is fast losing what little sparkle he ever had.

    " Look what they've done to my song, ma.
    Look what they've done to my song.
    Well they tied it up in a plastic bag and they turned it upside down.
    Look what they've done to my song."

    There must be a lot of old bags out there feeling a little nervous right now.

  3. At 20 cents a throw, they might do good trade in supplementing their pensions Justin.

    Some old bags are very entrepreneurial.
