Australia will introduce a policy to ban single-use prime ministers, the government has announced.

Political parties in the country will be given two months to stop providing disposable PMs.

“Every decade in Australia we use several single-use prime ministers. These politicians, many of which end up polluting our precious electorates, cause serious harm to all kinds of life,” says Woolworths CEO Phil Downing.

“Single-use prime ministers are killing off turnips and potatoes at alarming rates.”

Onions, however, are thriving.

Voters have welcomed the ban but remain cautious of a backflip.

Thicker ministers will be supplied for free until the ban is fully implemented.
