Pulling things together

Isn't it neat the way this blog covers such widely spread topics as carrier bag knitting and politics.

Yeah, I knew you would.

Anyhoo, so there was that PhonePayPlus mob from the other day, who are a non-profit organisation that regulates the premium rate phone service industry funded by levys on the industry and fines and stuff, rather than being funded by the taxpayer.

And today was fuck up the economy day, or when 'Allo Darlin' presents the Pre-Budget Report.

And I'm suddenly wandering what sort of tax these non-profit quango-like organisations pay. Do they pay corporation tax? Or except National Insurance, are they completely out of the tax system? Could the government tax them?

And what a neat revenue stream that would be.
