A Labour supporting garden centre owner has defended his tongue-in-cheek sign asking for a '10% Tory tax' from anyone who voted Conservative.

Matt Woodruff, who owners Woodruffs Yard in Lewes, East Sussex, placed a blackboard outside his store proposing a 'Tory tax' as 'one of the "tough" decisions I need to make' after the Conservatives gained an overall majority in the general election last week.

His sign asks for any Conservative voters to identify themselves upon entering so he can 'happily apply the 10% Tory tax on your plants'.

Mr Woodruff's sign adds: 'I'm sure, as someone who has opted to support a party of elitists, self-serving types, that you understand that this is one of the many "tough" decisions that I need to make to "balance the books" under your preferred govt. Don't be a shy Tory!'

His sign also has a message for UKIP voters, adding: 'Oh, and UKIP voters, please shop elsewhere.'

Maybe you should provide a link to this policy!

Big Business chains usually rely on selling in bulk. There is no such thing as multiplying by 10. usually markups are between 30 to 50%. During sales mark ups could be 0% or even less.

This big end of town usually places pressure on small business which find it difficult to compete.

You talk a lot of rubbish don't you?

Maybe the Tories can introduce the "Stupidity Tax" at 10%

Pay up Lordo!

What the prospect of five years’ of Tory rule leads to!

Thousands of people have signed a petition calling for the north of England to break free - and join an independent Scotland.

The extraordinary demand - on the change.org website - would create a border from Chester in the west to Sheffield in the east.

‘New Scotland’ would see Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle and every other northern community ruled from Edinburgh instead of London.
So far the petition has accrued more than 6,300 supporters.
