Be careful what you wish for: UK games industry gets parity with films as government abolishes the Film Council
The video games industry has long cried foul that it is not treated equally. We are upset that Canadian companies get better tax breaks than British ones and we whinge that film is treated with respect by government with tax breaks and a Film Council and quangos galore.
“We want parity with film,” we cry. “After all, they’ve got the Film Council.”
Parity at last?
(Note: this is a rapid response to breaking news – DCMS may announce a new, revised quango later. My point is tthat beggar-thy-neighbour politics are rarely successful)
