On the subject of tipping:
But the real answer is abolition, so restaurants are forced to pay proper wages.
So, because uppermiddle class lefties are uncomfortable with the idea of actually paying for service (good grief! they\’ll be insisting that teachers get paid on performance next, if waiters are!) they suggest that it should be against the law for you to proffer a tenner to whoever you might wish to.
Or would it be only waiters? Could you still give a £10 note to a random man on the street, but not to the person who served you dinner?
