HIRSUTE CALL ON HAMMOND TO INNOVATE WITH A SHAVING TAX

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has called on Chancellor Philip Hammond to be innovative in his Autumn Statement and announce a tax on shaving.

The campaigners say that while there has been a significant growth in beards, in reality they still represent a minority in the country compared to the clean shaven.

The BLF says that shaving is environmentally unfriendly and a Shaving Tax would do a good deal to address carbon reduction targets by reducing use of electric shavers and power used to make shaving products.

A Shaving Tax could be levied at £100 a year for all those who did not have a beard at the beginning of the financial year- April 1st. It would hit popular targets such as clean shaven bankers in the City who would have to grow a beard or pay up.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said, Philip Hammond does not have a beard but he could boost his popularity considerably a by implementing an innovative Shaving Tax.

The Beard Liberation Front announces the shortlists for Beard of the Year 2016 and Parliamentary Beard of the Year 2016 on 25th November
