image for UK'ers Ask What's the Vat? Darling Says: "Let's Raise Her!"
The raised VAT has been purportedly photographed for the first time inspiring fierce opposition

United Kingdomers are divided over Alstair Darling's secret and now denied plan to raise the VAT. Since almost no one in the British Isles has any idea what a VAT is nevermind what a raise in the VAT might mean, the civil war over the possibly non existent proposal has been particularly fierce.

"Raised VAT my TWAT!": proclaimed now senile Margaret Thatcher. The ghost of Winston Churchill told thespoof.seance that a raised VAT would be fine with him as long as it was a VAT of Whiskey.

Opponents of the raised VAT explained that they would go to their deaths over an increased VAT, no matter what it was:

" We are uncategorically opposed to any VAT, no less a raised VAT! Englanders deserve no VAT at all even if no one knows what a VAT really is. The denizens of John Bull's Island especially distrust the unknown!"
