‘Sarky’ Sarkozy thinks Brown is a fool and ‘England’ is the UK
In a bid to pacify his compatriates French president Nicolas Sarkozy says "Gordon Brown's decision to cut VAT has absolutely not worked. Cutting VAT by two points doesn't incite people to buy if they are scared about their future. If anything, consumption in Britain has gone down." Mr Sarkozy went on to suggest that France's response would be different from the UK's, because the "English have no industry". No but we don't have a idiot who get's himself a 'trophy' wife and takes a year off from his first term to woo her either. He is of course right about the VAT. I haven't seen a single price in every small shop come down because of the VAT cut. No-one is monitoring this aspect of the 2.5 % VAT cut.
