Another daft initiative. I remember the showdown between HMRC and the makers of Pringles. I recall the argument was to do with tax collected on normal crisps but Pringles were exempt because theirs were processed mulch, not deep-fried and so were exempt because they were not completely crisp-like. I think the makers eventually lost the case. It opened the door for some truly ridiculous examples for VAT collection (UK food is mostly exempt). The pasty tax was one such decision. It's astonishing that somewhere in the UK government or food related ministry there is a committee that sat down and gave serious thought to it while drawing serious salaries.
