Labour Have Got VAT Wrong Before

Not only did Labour screw up their VAT attack on the Tories today, they also made exactly the same mistake back in 2010. Then Shadow Chancellor Alan Johnson gaffed on live TV:

Given not knowing that almost all food is exempt from VAT cost Johnson his job, who’s going to take the fall this time?
