    I wish lol - but it was quite satisfying that my biggest bill of the year (I hope!) came a few days after the vat cut. Nice something goes my way for once! :jester:

    This government hasn't got a clue, I know hardcore labour lovers who honestly have nothing to say about the cock up being made right now :(

    I got 30% off my Omega Speedmaster from mate who works in Earnest Jones, he's been made redundant now though, hope I didn't contribute to it lol.

    A 2.13% saving isn`t worth the paper its written on, didn`t make me spend more or less I just got what I wanted. The discount codes I got online saved me more :) 20% off in elc :):):)




    see jojo ive done my maths this time :p

    So what you are saying is, that this 2.5% reduction on vat is going to be a major contribution to our country's obesity problem, right? :)

    Biggest joke ever!!!

    Lets give them a 2.5% reduction in VAT (-2.12% on current VAT inclusive items)

    THEN

    Lets up, NI, Tax, Fuel Duty etc oh and in 2010 well not put VAT back to 17.5% like many would suspect, we're going to bung it up to 18%

    TOSSERS!


    Well I aint saved a single penny yet as everything I have bought this week is the exact same price as it was before the cut so in reality Im far worse of with this life saving finantial gains the government has given us.

    And whats worse is....

    The not so clued up (ie the ones already in finantial ****) will think "Woohoo Im saving money by buying stuff now" and will go out and get in even deeper ****.

    The country is doomed!
