Gordon Brown to tax fun
Gordon Brown became embroiled in a new tax row last night as secret plans to introduce a levy on pub quizzes were revealed.
Confidential orders to council tax snoopers, obtained by The Mail on Sunday, say 'friendly' pubs with quiz nights, football teams or dartboards will be forced to pay higher business rates, which will pay for Labour's public-spending programme.
The plan, which could lead to big tax rises for bars deemed 'popular', was last night condemned by the Tories, who claimed it could lead to landlords cancelling quizzes and other social events.
What a surprise. Gordon now wants to tax FUN. He won’t be happy until he can tax everything. Gordon Brown is scum.
