Usual suspects vote for Tampon Tax

I am not normally somebody who seeks to stereotype people around a particular issue but frankly, the recent vote in the House of Commons seeking to zero rate tampons for VAT just lends itself to such a treatment.

The Western Mail reports that the eleven Welsh MPs who voted against this proposal were male and Conservative.

The lack of empathy is shocking. It cannot be right that condoms do not attract VAT but women's sanitary products do. Surely, zero rating for tampons should be one of David Cameron's key asks when renegotiating the terms of Britain's membership of the EU.
