Chocolate biscuits attract VAT; biscuits without chocolate are zero-rated for VAT. By choosing to buy non-chocolatey biscuits I deny the treasury its 20%: I am engaging in a practice called tax avoidance, the use of legal means to reduce my tax burden.

UK Uncut campaigns against tax avoidance. Am I being morally dubious when I buy a packet of pink wafers, rather than a Kit Kat or a Blue Riband?
