Plastic straw cocktail

Passion over the issue of plastic straws got too much for the Telegraph’s leader writer last week. It called ‘the latest EU bombast’ to ‘order Britain to outlaw plastic straws … hostile, tendentious, futile, piddling and contrary to the liberties of our ancient realm’. Lol.

It suggested we use straws made from stainless steel, silver and/or, well, straw. Nurse!
