Game on: how we can lure lucrative industry

Britain's decision to ditch tax relief for the video-gaming sector could be our gain, says Willie O'Dea

IT was a curious week for Fine Gael. If it wasn't flip-flopping over how many jobs it couldn't create with its NewEra plan: it was trying to convince its own members that it wasn't engaged in cute-hoor politics.

While this may be deeply interesting to those within the FG camp, it won't excite or stimulate people who are looking to see where we can source possible new jobs and opportunities.

Perhaps it was this focus on their own internal concerns that caused the opposition parties to miss an interesting recent development in the UK which could be of benefit to us here in Ireland.
