There's A Shop Currently Threatening To Charge 10% Tax To Tory-Voting Customers

The sign isn't kind to UKIP voters either.

Posted on

The sign went on display outside the independent plant and garden store Woodruff's Yard in East Sussex over the weekend.

It reads:

IMPORTANCE NOTICE: Please could anyone who voted Conservative identify themselves on entering my shop as I will be happy to apply a 10% 'Tory tax' on your plants. I'm sure, as someone who has opted to support a party of elitist, self-serving types, that you understand that this is one of the many 'tough' decisions that I need to make to 'balance the books' under your preferred govt. Don't be a shy Tory! Oh, and UKIP voters, please shop elsewhere. Thanks, Matt.

BuzzFeed has reached out to the store's owner to see how serious he is about the tax.
