Not sure how the tourists would handle it but why not make the VAT change depending on if it’s the summer months or not. =) That way it’s not disciminatory towards EU citizens.

Interesting – I mentioned to my Spanish wife that I thought it strange that they moved it back to September – why not introduce it in August like they were going to in order to get more foreign holidaymakers to pay VAT? She reckons it was something to do with the large tourism lobby demanding they leave the precious tourists alone.
