"dangerous alcohol and tobacco are regulated but permitted, and comparatively innocuous substances such as ecstasy and cannabis forbidden" - where do they come up with these things?

You can write fantastic code in PHP and make it as neat and as OO as you like (see things like Zend Framework, Symfony, Code Ignitor, Magento), you can also write messy code because there is a very low barrier to entry (OScommerce and the code of a number of companies I've worked at). However the community is huge and I believe the main reason for that is how easy it is to pick up and run with.

"Such firms have effectively been hit by a 2.5 per cent cut in revenues." - Not true they have also updated the flat rate payout schemes, I am in my first year of trading as a contractor through a limited company I now only need to pay out 10.5% (I used to pay out 12% so have lost 0.5%)
