The Daily Express & Carrier Bags

We all know that the tabloids blatantly lie about things to get a story out of something. What you may not realise is just how often they do it about the same thing.

The fantastic website Tabloid Watch has outlined the Daily Express’ stories about the E.U. and their apparent desire to ban plastic carrier bags. Maybe not such a bad thing as it would help me to stop forgetting my shopper bags every time I go to a supermarket or suchlike.

Here are a few front pages for you:

Needless to say, the E.U. aren’t banning plastic bags at the moment. More info about all this and some background is available on this page.
