Poland: The government imposes 5 percent sales tax on food

Out of 100 promises, the governing coalition made before elections only 9 were kept. Among them was raising sales tax (VAT) on food from 0 to 5 percent. 

To make things worse, the new tax gets in force on April Fool's Day. This coincidence was not lost on many Poles. The current Prime Minister is a subject of many jokes and memes on the internet today. None of them can be published here.
