what 2.5% vat could save me…

Am I supposed to be excited about the “big” annoucment of a 2.5% VAT discount aimed at kickstarting the British economy?  Um. No.

This is what the discount can save me.

£149 Apple Ipod Nano 16gb – save £3.73
£475 Aspinal of London leather handbag – save £11.88
£90 Camper walking shoes – save £2.25
£10,000 TagHeuer watch – save £250

Thanks for that extra Starbucks latte, Mr. Darling, but I’ll pass and try to put some money in savings instead.
