Guildford 2 St Andrews 0
Friday, 30 October 2009
A Labour party member had suggested that Fife Council should give St Andrews some free parking days, as had happened in Guildford, because of the cut in VAT. The Starlink convenor described the comparison as 'chalk and cheese', and listed various comparisons between the towns, including population, history and transport infrastructure. What neither she nor the Labour member realised was that on-street parking, the prevalent form in St Andrews, is not subject to VAT!
