Just when you think the UK will do something right for the games industry they take it back.

Another reason for us to want out of the EU.

Vote for the UK Independence Party. Nigel Farage would be the best Prime Minister for the UK.

Or loan it, what with state of society as a whole at the moment meaning that's you need to borrow just to be able to afford most of the time, especially for those on low income. It's not just the game market that's suffering, it's everything / everyone. Sorry I've gone off topic for a bit, it's just been sitting on the top of my tongue for a while and this was just the right conversation to express that view.

The EU interfering in national governments and telling them what industry they can and can't support yet again. The sooner we leave the EU and get our freedom back the better.

Are the EU idiots?

This tax relief was brought in under the former Labour government and the Conservative-Lib Dem government scrapped it when they got into power. Now they've done a U-turn and brought it back in.

So what's changed EU? You didn't seem to have a problem before.
