Pastie Tax

Recommended Posts

Butchers and bakers are up in arms about the so called Pastie Tax.

'The chief executive of Newcastle- based baker Greggs, Ken McMeikan, said the proposal “raised the scenario where someone at the front of the queue is subject to VAT and the person at the back [buying a product that has cooled down] would not be”.

Mr Osborne admits that he can't remember the last time he visited Gregg's - now there's a surprise. :lol:

Hitting the vulnerable bridie. It is hard to see where this move makes sense. It is not good for the small businesses that have tried to diversify and very irritating for people on a low income.

I heard on radio 4 this morning that Cameron was asked by a member of the public when he last ate a pastie. He replied that it has been fairly recently, from a named station vendor in Leeds. Journalists covering the story checked the vendor and it has closed 5 years ago. OMG, our man of the people... :rolleyes:

LBC this am: "Cameron, more familiar with antipastie than Cornish..." :lol:

:lol: I think people will be asking 'what's the temperature of your pasties'. How cool do they have to be before tax applies?
