I'm not sure about that. I had heard they have some sort of conversation with the taxman along the lines of threatening to withdraw from the Rep.of Ire. unless they got some sort of tax deal. I would like it if this could be refuted or substansiated though.

UP TO 30% OFF!
WE CAN'T BE BEAT.

Along those lines. Competition.

Also, why don't Argos and Woodies sell coffins? The finest MDF, at a fraction of what the local Funeral Directors charge. I never understood the idea of burying a brand new, expensive, ornate coffin under the ground.

The churches could re-establish dominance over Tesco by giving you a free tin of beans after every 20 masses attended.
