Riot Over Plastic Bag

As the BBC investigates Kenya’s ban on single-use plastic bags, we recall the chaos caused by the 5p charge here with a tune based on The Fall’s How I Wrote Elastic Man…

I thought I’d pop out to Tescos
Cos I don’t go near Waitrose
But they asked me for 50p
I went ballistic
And the people backed me
In a riot over plastic bag

I am the carry bag man
Don’t stop me in the shoppes
Lucifer over Lidls ah

Life should be full of canvas
Like a bag for life
But I do the best I can
I am a carry bag man
A creeping wreck
A mental wretch
All because of 50p
Riot over plastic bag
