I don't think we have to worry about an invasion by the British. We need to worry about an invasion by our cousins the Auzzies. I just read that they have been hit by a 10% GST tax - July 1/2000. I think we will be swamped by them retiring early and moving to Canada. They will be happy paying only a 7% GST. I wonder if they have an equivalent to our PST. If they don't maybe they will all move to Alberta as they will not be happy living in a province where PST or HST is charged. Do the English have to pay a tax on their tea or was that stopped with the American revolution?
