Aye... it was highly efficient for Christmas shopping. I just hope the VAT reduction also counts for return flights to Amsterdam. ¬_¬

I agree, waste of time, especially as after another year it will go back up - to 18.5% :?

Oh, and as the voting choices were "cool and uncool", I moved it to the cool/uncool sections (uncool to be precise) ;) )

Not massivly more, just 1% more than the original rating. And don't forget, it is would still be amongst the cheapest rates in Europe - other countries are at around 19%/20% still :)

Last time I went to Paris for holiday, I saw prices for things in Euros, and at the exchange rate at the time, the things I saw were not that much difference in price to equivilent in Britain. The only thing I saw much cheaper was french beer and wine - and that is only because it is produced locally

Must admit, when we went to Tererife in September, we blew through a grand between 2 of us, and that was without getting pissed every night...
