the only time i voted for RW gov't here was to introduce a GST and get rid of ridiculous 'luxury taxes' etc
Bloody stupid and the fact they all (legacy taxation systems)  seem to have tampons listed as luxury just shows how crap for the majority of people it was to live under governance from pre 21st century.

Bloody ridiculous idea. And anyway, Jaffa Cakes (real one's) are made in Edinburgh. Smile

Looked 'em up:

Wiki wrote:The most common form of Jaffa Cakes are circular, 2 1⁄2 inches (64 mm) in diameter and have three layers: a Genoise sponge base, a layer of orange flavoured jelly and a coating of chocolate.

Two-and-a half inches.  Wow, I reckon y'all have some very big cooters over there.  And chocolate...is that for the iron loss?

Secondly, the EU dictates that we must put a minimum of 5% tax on womens sanitary products... so all you lot who support EU membership are responsible for it!!!

The EU makes us put the tax on the tampons.

The jaffa cake is included as regular food so does not have vat added like other regular foods.
