Whilst people may be surprised about the chancellor's proposed u-turn on scrapping the 10% tax band, and perhaps less surprised that the measures designed to assist those affected won't come into play until August's pre-budget, who'd have thought one could be so surprised about a cup of tea!

The winner of the caption competition is again Kevin Lawrence. Congratulations Kevin a bottle of Alsace White (Klipfel Pinot Blanc) is on its way to you.

After receiving his prize from last week Kevin said: "The Beaujolais arrived safely today thank you, I shall no doubt raise a glass to AccountingWEB.co.uk over the weekend!".

His winning entry this week was:

When he tasted the tea Alistair realised the canteen staff were among those affected by the loss of the 10% band
