    What's the old bag moaning about? It's quite simple : you can only eat
    things purchased IN the cafe. What's so difficult to understand?

    Now, in the US the tax people are not above doing just what she did and
    then fining the store for not enforcing the tax law. Are the UK tax
    people equally slimy?

    These cafe owners are idiots. I had people bring in their brown bag
    lunches because they were eating with someone who
    had popped into their office and said 'let's have lunch'. They
    brought in their lunch and the other person bought theirs from me.
    The person who brown bagged it would always buy a drink and a dessert
    and we would take their brown bag lunch to the kitchen
    and plate it properly for them.

    You cannot build a good will image in your community by actions as
    stupid as these.

    They will lose customers....as well they should.

    Most restaurants don't mind losing customers when they are taking up
    space and not buying their food there. They aren't really customers, so
    losing them is not a problem.

    Simple. "Customers must purchase food". The old bag hadn't, but her
    daughter had - 20 worth, apparently.

    Read the article again. I don't know how it works in Australia, but the
    article said the VAT tax is different depending on whether a cookie is
    purchased in the bakery or the restaurant.

    It's even worse in the US, as these taxes are sales taxes, and are
    assessed (or not) by the 50 states. The rules are all different, and if
    you aren't confused enough, the counties within the states can add on
    additional taxes.

    Yeah, no here in Oz it's pretty much normal, so long as the food doesn't
    seem to put the establishment at risk of OH&S violations.

    And you're right, that does sound confusing >_>

    Which isn't all that much to spend when divvied up between the four of
    them in the family. But I can understand how it was forbidden, because
    tax (VAT) laws are in place. It doesn't always make common sense, but it
    exists.

    Sheldon, I see nothing written to suggest she was assaulted. She was
    verbally warned about the rules. End of story.

    In the UK there's no VAT on food bought direct from stores; but there
    is VAT on food eaten in restaurants .

    The Daily Mail is a tabloid infamous for publishing imaginary
    grievances under ridiculously hyped headlines.

    In the UK, standard practise in food outlets, is that they don't permit
    the consumption
    of customers own food brought in from any other source whatever. That
    is to comply with food hygiene regulations, and playing safe with legal
    liability for customers health and safety.
    If caught in breach of hygiene regulations they could be fined, or
    worst scenario, closed down pending inquiries.

    Evading VAT liability is also an offence.

    Nobody touched her. The police were not informed, no charges were
    brought, she was not brought to justice and is not a criminal.
    Its typical DM hot air hype.
