This is an extract from an article in Today's(Friday's) Business This Week in the Irish Times, Link tomorrow when im awake.
"If you had a choice between implementing a zero VAT rate on Children's shoes and clothes and offering a lower rate of VAT on restaurants, which would you support?
Logic would tell you that the former is much more important..."
The author of this wonderful piece is none other than Fine Gael MEP Gay Mitchell. With none too little irony a member of the same party that presided over a Budget which proposed to do just that with VAT on childrens shoes, and was subsequently defeated in the Dail. Wonderful stuff.
