Chancellor punveils plans

Sooo many puns today, but the headlines were dominated by VAT-related gags as a result of Alistair Darling's announcement that the tax will be lowered to 15% next week. However, we will all be paying for the government's attempts to kick-start the economy with higher taxes after the next General Election. Woohoo!

So many to highlight.

Sun:

UP TO ARREARS

(special mention for the Sun's front page today, which also included a whole paragraph of Gordon Ramsay food / alleged affair puns)

Daily Star:

WE'LL NEVER DEBT OUT OF THIS MESS

Daily Mirror:

A VAT LOT OF GOOD?

My pun idea:

VAT'S TRAGIC

Hats off to Punlimited's #1 fan Joe, who yesterday predicted the tone of today's headlines. I would be lost without your inspiration!

Thanks Dunners

Have to admit that Vats Tragic is marginally better than my suggestion of VATs Magic.
