There's no need for a witty pramble to this marvellous little report from online news service Ananova:
'Hungary's culture minister has unveiled plans for a tax on ties.
'"Ties and bow ties are created by designers, who are artists, and therefore some of their earnings should support the arts and culture here in Hungary," said politician Maria Schneider.
'She added: "Good design is after all a sign of culture, so it is right that the Culture Ministry should benefit from it.
'"People are just as keen on buying a Cavalli tie nowadays as they were more than a century ago on buying a Dickens book."
'Schneider wants a 0.8% tax on all sales.'
