My point was that most of the left leaning media have blown this 'pasty tax' way out of proportion. Its as if they want to divert attention to the fact that most of the working population will receive hundreds of pounds extra a year. Instead they want to focus on a tiny tax change designed to close a loophole that will cost a small section of the population a few pence a year, and that's assuming pasty shops actually pass on the price increase.
Also referring to your question, I really can't see why students would be more concerned about saving a few pence on a small range of hot food when they will end up receiving £100+ per year extra when they graduate or on their work placement year. I can't imagine other people being particularly bothered if it wasn't for the media spinning this story.
Why make the poorer and the rich even more rich!
