Joanna Lumley calls on Boris Johnson to tax single-use plastics

Joanna Lumley has said Brexit has distracted politicians from focusing on environmental issues, as she called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to introduce a levy on single-use plastic bottles.

The Absolutely Fabulous actress said the reliance on water bottles made of plastic is causing an environmental crisis which will destroy the planet.

She told PA: β€œI think it sometimes is extremely hard when there is something grabbing the headlines.

β€œBut I am now going to say something a bit controversial, I think that women are able to cope with lots of different things at the same time so the single issue thing might be a man thing, I’m just thinking of Brexit, I’m sorry, I can’t think of anything else.
