Fancy that...

June 2009: "Treasury minister, Kitty Ussher, has been forced to resign after avoiding paying up to £17,000 in tax on the sale of her constituency home." Source: Daily Telegraph.

November 1993: "These are tricky times for students at Balliol College, Oxford, bastion of liberal values for more than 700 years. The problem is tampons. Undergraduates have voted to pay a 'Tampax tax' to provide women at the mixed college with free sanitary protection. The tax was proposed by Kitty Ussher, a PPE student and women's group member, who said women were 'economically disadvantaged by a biological necessity'." Source: Observer.
