Actually most of Play's customer went to Amazon years ago. Amazon do charge VAT, but dodge most other taxes - Creston's end result is likely correct.

Ahem no. Assuming that it is true what you say about the customers moving away to Amazon years ago and the Amazon bending the rules, then we'd simply have the very same situation as before the intervention of politicians. The customers, the employees and the cash simply moved elsewhere.

Creston's version was more like life ended for everyone.

Besides, UK politics has shown some intentions to stop those tax loop holes for Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook & Co too.
