Um, the "Pastie Tax" has been well known for a week now. What rock were you under?

"Pastie Tax" is just media spin, its actually a tax on all hot baked goods, and can be avoided by buying cold pasties and heating them youselves. Its not even a new tax, all they have done is ended the tax-exempt status on hot baked goods.

Basically this is because not all government ministers own a mansion with private learjet yet. Them mansions have to be paid for by the poor, somehow.


So someone that works out of a van all day like myself has to buy cold pasties? I don't have a microwave fitted in my van.

What rock? it is called work.

Gotta love how stating the facts about something automatically equals that they agree with it on these boards.

No, I dont agree with the ending of the tax-exempt status of baked goods. Does that change the facts that it has happened?

I think it was the "rock" comment that got my back up.

Am I allowed that?

You might be surprised at how much tax pasties have always been liable for. Fuel to bake pasties or grill burgers @ 20%, employer's national insurance contributions @ 9%. Business rates @ the whim of the local authority %.
