The Increase in Value Added Tax

There is supposed to be chaos today in many shops because of the increase of VAT to 20%

Why? because many of the labels on products still say the old price and it is only when a customer gets to the checkout that they no the true price.

Apparently even big names like Boots and Comet are guilty of this.

Still I suppose that it has caught all the top executives by surprise.

Hey they have only known for months! Why are such high salaries paid to these people when they can't plan ahead.

Enough of the rant. Let us have a joke:- A man has been drinking at his golf club. On his way home he is pulled over by police who inform him that he is too drunk to drive. "Too drunk to drive" exclaims the man " I can barely putt"

Techno has been working on my new internet marketing website although we have one or two finally touches to do. See http://www.john-f-beaumont.com/
