I realise this issue is old news in the Uke – but out here in the Land Of Smiles, domestic silly stuff sometimes takes time to reach me.
It seems that six months ago, in the Old Country, people were getting in all sorts of a dither about being charged VAT for hot pasties, while cold ones were VAT-free.
Well, we have VAT here, too. So when I go into a 7-Eleven, I take my snack out of the fridge FIRST – pay for it – THEN ask the assistant to nuke the thing.
Is this too simple for Britain?
