    If I recall well, school children under 18 would not be given cards. They are only issued in colleges.
    Fairly sure I had one, had to use it to pay for school dinners, alternatively a bus pass could have a photo on it.

    Ah well I lived in a village and walked to school, but the buss pas is something I did not consider.

    Tbh I would be for this but the obvious tax avoidance that could take place as someone mentioned above probably means it's not viable.

    I really should start counting people who have openly admitted to not reading what was placed in front of them.

    Maybe you just shouldn't have written such a stupid bill?

    How am I supposed to demonstrate the stupidity of the argument without writing a bill which everyone who hasn't read it rejects?

    I guess I can count you on the "at best half read" list

    To be honest this idea has actually crossed my mind before with paying taxes and getting representation

    the thing is that VAT means that prices are 120% of what they would be otherwise. JD's making a pedantic remark about how 0.2/1.2 != 0.2

    Just run off from them when you get to the checkout, say you’ll buy them a toy or sweet, who wouldn’t? 20% is a lot.
