HOW dare the government consider raising VAT to 18.5 per cent and then not implement it? Outrageous. Must be the first time in history when any government has thought about doing something and then thought: “Nah, let’s not.”
At least under the Tories, when they thought of something, they would have the guts to implement it, whether it was a good idea or not! But not this lot, oh no. Just wait, I’ll bet no-one is forced to resign over “we-thought-about-raising- VAT-to-eighteen-and-a-half-per-cent-but-finally-decided-not-to-GATE”.
