Our thanks to Nigel for this. The start of the piece:
The Green Party of England and Wales is promising free sanitary products for those who cannot afford them.
The Greens pledged to end “period poverty” by providing towels and tampons to secondary school pupils and women in financial need.
A 5% tax on sanitary products has caused controversy and 320,000 people have signed a petition to abolish it.
The Greens said the project could be funded by adding VAT to some products that are currently exempt.
The party singled out aircraft repairs and “the sale of airships” as areas they could target. [my emphasis]
Sometimes the Greens make it too easy to lampoon.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
