Brown puts bite on butties

Bacon_sandwich

It seems that nasty Gordon Brown is targeting the humble British caff’s bacon and sausage sandwiches, in his inexorable drive to pay off government debts.

A recent TS morning trip for a medicinal toasted BLT (with mayo) saw the goodies presented in a bag with our old friend Adam Hart-Davis staring back: ‘Get your tax return in the bag before Christmas,’ he pleads.

The advert caused great concern for the owners of our favourite snack stop, as they’ve always claimed back VAT on sarnie bag purchases ­ but without buying them in the first place (tut tut). They’re worried that it could be HMRC’s way of keeping a closer eye on them.
