There are rumours that the great football being played by Premier league teams at the top of that division may become a thing of the past. People fear that the new higher rate of tax – Brown’s spite tax – may start to deter foreign stars from coming to Britian to earn their mega bucks and display their skills.
As Labour passes from the era of Stealth taxes to the era of Spite taxes, we need to ask why?
Is the idea of the spite tax to create a scorched earth policy? Do Mr Brown and Mr Balls dream of being able to say in opposition that Premier League football is not what is was in their day under a future Conservative government?
Or is this at last the implementation of the PM’s policy of British jobs for British workers?
