Well, IG Click thought he had for a while

Hot on the heels of tax-based political arguments, we thought that Chancellor Gordon Brown had blown it for a minute when we saw IG Click's ADSL prices. For the monthly rental on a 512Kbps line, IG Click was charging £99 excluding VAT but £120 including VAT. Which meant either it had cocked up its pricing or our Gordon has raised VAT to 21.21 per cent.

Seeing as we hadn't read anything about it, we went with the likely option that IG Click had got it wrong. And sure enough, before we could blink (well, take a screenshot), suddenly the prices on its Web site changed.

You'd think that that was it, the evidence has been destroyed, but no - look closer. How many times have you seen services offered for £102.13, £127.66 or £153.19?

Still, this may all be academic. If our readers are to be believed, you'd need your head examined if you wanted to start an account with IG Click. ®
