Telecoms versus old-school vice: HMG shows which it prefers

HM Government is squeezing telecoms far harder than some more traditional forms of vice:
  • Amount raised for HM Government by 4G spectrum auction: £2,341 million
  • Levy on UK mobile telecoms subscribers (for who else will fund it?): £2,341 million
  • Levy on UK betting, gaming and lottery, HM Government, 2012: £1,682 million
