Caravan tax

Posted: April 21, 2012 in Broken Britain

There’s a saying that you can’t get blood out of a stone but ToffTories are obviously intent on proving you can. Even though we must be the most taxed country in the world Toff/Tories have found another way of squeezing more money out of us Joe Public.

They’ve obviously have cotton on to the fact that more people are staying in the UK for their holidays, the buzz word being ‘staycation’ what idiot thought that up, so they plan to extend VAT on sales of static caravans which most holidaymakers stay in.
Sittingbourne and Sheppey MP Gordon Henderson said: “The sale of holiday caravans will be very badly hit if they incur VAT at 20 %, and in turn the park-owned business will be hit because operators will have to increase their hire charges to balance their books”.

There goes that cheap holiday by the sea for the hard up.

British Gas Essentials tariff

Thanks to the government of millionaires my cheap rate British Gas Essential tariff has been stopped and replaced by the new Warm Home Discount Scheme which only applies to electricity customers. Well my heating is by gas Downing Street David this means in real terms my gas tariff goes up to Standard tariff whilst I’m being awarded less financial aid through the electricity scheme I’m eligible for anyway. Me thinks someone from British Gas has been to dinner with you!
