Cash had been calling them “these products” throughout the debate over a proposed amendment to the Finance Bill to renegotiate the 5% “tampon tax” imposed on them because they are “luxury” goods. He avoided saying the term for an hour and 15 minutes — and then they kept talking about it for about another hour.

I don’t know  what’s more ridiculous: that you can’t say tampon, that  they’re arguing about the tax on it, that they’re arguing about not saying tampon, or that it’s called tampongate. Ugh.
