They Want Us to Eat Ass
Submitted by Caswell Frankyn
On May 30, 2017 the Minister of Finance, Christopher Sinckler, increased the rate of the National Social Responsibility Levy (NSRL) from 2% to 10%. After a public outcry, the Minister relented and exempted the items in the VAT free Basket of Goods from the payment of the NSRL as well.
That move was welcomed by many persons, some of whom did not even know what was contained in the Basket of Goods. I must confess that I am one of the persons who was not familiar with the items in the basket.
I downloaded a copy and started to peruse it. One of the items jumped out at me. I could not believe my eyes. Government actually exempted, from the payment of VAT and now NSRL, the edible offal of ASSES.
I had my doubts but now I am absolutely convinced that this Government does not care.
