These Women Had The Best Responses To Tampons Being Considered A "Luxury" Item

Can't wait to go home and treat myself to a nice hot bath, a box of chocolates, and a luxurious tampon.

After MPs voted against a motion forcing the Treasury to challenge Brussels over the β€œtampon tax”, some women have taken to Twitter to point out just how ridiculous the idea of tampons as a luxury item actually is.

1. This woman knows how to unwind ~luxuriously~.

Last month, MPs voted against a Labour motion forcing the Treasury to challenge Brussels over the "tampon tax". An original version of this article incorrectly stated they had voted against scrapping the tax.
