Premier League Already Pays £1.3 Billion in Tax Per Year


Labour’s latest proposed tax on fun is a 5% compulsory levy on Premier League football TV revenues, announced by Harriet Harman this morning. The Premier League tell Guido that they already contribute £1.3 billion in tax revenues to the government annually, so it is inevitable that the cost will be passed on to fans. The cheapest season ticket at Arsenal for the coming year is £1,014, already a 3% hike on last year, while a Sky Sports TV package sets you back another £552 a year. Under Labour you would likely end up paying more. What cost of living crisis?

    Will says:

    If this is the best tax policy they can come up with. It’s the politics of envy. Whilst the extreme revenue of the premier league may be obscene, proposing a tax would not help. It’s not smart to piss of football fans as the premier league will just cut the amount it pays in solidarity payments to the league rather than cut its members revenue.

    Harriet H (The Labour Party - for the people) says:

    Of course, working class people shouldn’t be able to afford such luxuries as Football, these things are reserved for employees of the state and the middle classes.

    People like ‘us’.

    After all, when lots of working class people could afford to go to the football, everyone had to stand up, they used to chant these terribly unpleasant songs and there were far too many people in the ground to have enough room for decent seats. And they used to sell pasties and pies – not a decent prawn sandwich to be had anywhere.

    We cannot put up with such things in the modern game.

    Mycroft says:

    You right on the money here.

    Labour would need to take the equivalent of another 10p per pound on income tax to fund there existing plans.

    Reality, the state is useless and fumble-fingered with our money, remember it is OUR money, we agree to being taxed so that in return we make GAINS in social improvement that we couldn’t if we were to act singly.

    Now, I doubt that any single one of us would allow the losses all the recent Govs has dismissed with a wave of the hand regarding just IT contracts.

    Would any one of us really sit down and having been given others money accept £500million losses?

    Not one of us, we’d be in amongst the rabble fighting to string those responsible up.

    But they don’t give a flying f’ck.

    You’re tied to PAYE or if you even show dissent you are penalised.

    With both the above they really don’t hae to give a flying f’ck, any loss is written off because there is more to taxation to cover the cluster-f’ck.

    There is a moral aspect to this, the state must be pegged back, the goal, the attainable goal is to reduce the overall tax take to 33%… at the moment it is closing in on 50%

    “2 for me for my work, 1 for you for my betterment.” is a meme we need as a whole to adopt.

    That’s all Labour can do, Tax, Tax, Tax. They’ve said nothing about areas where they can make savings (they like to call them ‘Cuts’ but they’re not CUTS when we’re having to borrow the money in the first place). They’re a pox on Fiscal Constraint and would have us running back to the IMF by the end of the decade if they get back in. If you want a smaller Government, spending within your means, greater individual rights, better representation and a greater say in what Government do, then you know who the ONLY real Libertarian Party is..

    Socialism/Communism politics is so easy. A problem is presented and the solution is always the same, the state must do more. To do this we must tax you or someone else and the state will solve the problem. The far right have a similar simplistic solution, there is a problem and the solution is to expel or eradicate a particular group of people who are causing the problem. If Labour get back in either with a majority or with the help of the leftward leaning Lib Dems, the first few years will be dominated by “having to keep to the previous governments spending limits and we’ve inherited a mess”. Followed by tax and spend, ” aren’t we doing well”! Of course all the while the debt meter will be increasing and the economy declining as taxes are increased to further ludicrous social/union policies. Before you vote Labour or any other party that let’s them in, think hard and long about what you are going to cause.

    Just like the demi-god Usain Bolt, rather take appearance money or make complete tw*ts of themselves by advertising crap than do the thing that made them filthily rich in the first place.
    And like the complete balloon heads the BBC thinks we are we buy into it every time.

    HMRC Taxation and Spending -AKA as an Accountability Laundering Exercise says:

    Are you high? Money grows on trees in Labour La,La Land, and Accountability is for the lesser minions. As for this £680,000 bill, I’d sent every one of the 18,365 people of Morley and Outwood who voted for him the bill. That equates to £37 each. Job done.

    Pardon – complaining about bias in the MSM against Israel ?!

    Maybe the deal is that there is one ‘allowed’ biased Palestinian report – for every 100 biased Israel reports.

    In the interests of balance of course.

    What I would like to know, without for one minute seeming to side with Ishraeel, is, if it is impossible to get a packet of pasta or a bottle of clean water through the “blockade” how can Hamas manage to get 100 rockets a week in.
    Is somebody;
    1. Lying?
    2. Promoting a Palestinian agenda?

    Stonewall is one of the thousands of fake charities that the taxpayer funds. If you disagree with their message then tough, you are just going to have to put up with it and continue giving it money. After all, who cares what you think ?

    64,000,000million? That’s 8 times the population of the world. Do they all have postal votes in Labour heartlands? It would explain a lot.

    i will enjoy reading the cost benefit analysis on this one.

    ultimately I think the premier league tv contracts are fixed in the short term so this will mean less money to clubs who will opt to raise ticket prices and reduce wages (therefore the quality of footie).

    in the longer term, I hope a loophole is found however, it is likely to inflate retail prices for tv and tickets, the quality of football will fall and fewer people will watch. it may increase piracy too.

    so there we have it indiscriminate indirect taxation is never free this one will have an economic cost. i expect many taxes like this, pension raids, oil and energy company windfall taxes. maybe a window tax?

    good one old labour

    Taxes are traditionally paid by the working classes. Beer, fags, footie. What about fishing? It ‘costs’ the government 28 billion per year to leave them alone, when they should be paying their fair share. How else can Labour Grandees live like the CEOs of successful mid-cap companies without doing anything resembling work?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
