    10 years ago, this would shock people, but since England has handed over it's entire culture to people of Middle Eastern descent, who cant see that this soon-to-be Godforsaken country has completely sold out to the PC zombies.

    Looks like in England the days of taking a McDonald's Happy Meal on the road are over. Ghey

    Funny, last night my wife pulled out a metal straw at the Restaurant. She purchased several complete with a carrying sack. I don't like straws, so I drank my water without one. She and my son used their metal ones, and no one thought this is a big deal; only kooks think so.

    Nice of you to be able to afford it you rich fuck.

    We will also start seeing more foodborne diseases from people not cleaning their reusables properly

    But virtue signaling trumps common sense and easy hygiene.

    As I posted, only kooks feel this is big deal, and this kook fails to comprehend that continued use of plastic straws means more ending up in the oceans.

    Straws?! Those can be dangerous weapons! Blowing one out of the paper sleeve, you can put an eye out at 10 paces. Short of that, they are a terrible scourge that is contributing to global warming.

    It's a sad thing people have lost control of their straws while technology has advanced to a point that straws can find their own way to the ocean.
    Maybe we should ban the bathtub to keep them from making people slip ... :dunno:

    And only annoying control freaks decide that a national law is the only recourse for something like this, unlike say, god forbid, ASKING people who can afford re-usable portable utensils to do so.

    it's always about force with government cocksuckers like you.

    I remember when I was a kid we had a couple glass straws. Straws were all paper then (biodegradable, I guess) but I loved the glass ones. Very special.
    I heard somewhere years ago that in Britain, fast food joints have always served their soft drinks in glass, and customers leave the empties.
    I think it's a great idea to get rid of excessive plastic. My stepmom said plastic shopping bags are next in her area. We should have thought about it BEFORE we started using it, but what the hell--we've got to get rid of that floating land of plastic in the Pactific. It's disgusting.
