Activision Threatens UK Over Tax Breaks

Britain's plans to end tax relief for game development are "a terrible mistake," said Bobby Kotick in the UK's Sunday Telegraph, reports TechZone360, with the Activision CEO going on to subtly threaten: "There are so many other places that are encouraging the video games industry." They also quote Richard Wilson, chief executive of UK trade group TIGA on the subject of developer tax relief. "For too long, the coalition Government has acted like a one-club golfer. It has had a strategy for reducing the deficit but little to say about growth," said Wilson. "The video game sector offers opportunities for growth and high value, high technology job creation for the UK."

Good for the UK, Tax cuts/Corporate Welfare based greed is why the world is in a economic tailspin, atm. It's also stealing from the nations/states coffers to do things like build roads, pay teachers and police.  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.
