a simplified version of that video

"The price of tampons will almost certainly fall if the UK government gets control of VAT rates."

That's something I suppose. For some. smile

Millions of women are now changing the way they'll vote!

The fact that the pound will be devalued such that the tampons actually cost more in real terms will be conveniently overlooked.

Remember those booze cruises from Dover to Calais, before duty free was abolished?

Will millions of women from France come to the UK on tampon cruises?

For those with a sweet tooth, leave is a good result. Tate & Lyle pay a huge tariff on their raw cane sugar imports. So it's not all bad lol

That's because the single market tries to protect its own traders/businesses producing sugar beet sugar as against cane sugar which can't be grown in Europe. I am for supporting our businesses every time.

I think that a lot of young women are going for a thing called a 'mooncup' - if you get on with that no need to ever buy a tampon again!

Far better to give up sugar! grin

I just had to google mooncup, I'm going back to sleep, it's to much.shock

My DD once tried a mooncup. She couldn't get away with it and went back to tampons.
