    Lowering VAT by 2.5% was a master class in shrewd economics. Benefit to consumers was almost unnoticeable and stimulated absolutely zero purchasing yet the cost to the treasury was billions. There's really no way back other that to overcompensate with a rise to 20% which can then be left there.
    It stimulated growth and took the country out of recession.
