    End of 'Rip Off' charges for paying by card

    Thanks to an EU directive (what bit of taking back control does this involve?) charges for payment by credit card are to be outlawed:

    And for those doubting the sincerity of the Tory Government this is to be extended to ALL payment methods, not just credit cards.

    Champagne all around I would say!

    That just HAD TO be done as fewer and fewer companies were recently charging a fee for payments made via credit and debit cards.

    It was a racket, and everybody knew it was.

    I would expect that the "EU directive" that scraps charging extra for credit payments would be carried forward to the switch-over that is ongoing as we take all of the EU laws back onto our own statute-books.

    We would at least hope that all of the best laws that are at the moment part of the EU remit will be taken back and made part of our own laws before Brexit actually happens.
