Why does "meer" come at the end of the sentence?

That's just the Dutch word order. Actually it's similar to the English "there is no toilet paper anymore."

Maybe this is a British English distinction. What is wrong with saying "WC paper" instead of "toilet paper"?

According to Google n-grams, "wc paper" is never said, it's always "toilet paper", regardless what you call your toilet.
