It means your list contains an instance of a class whose __repr__()
method returns "vText(u'PAYE')".  If it follows common practice, the
class is probably named "vText".  You are likely to be importing and
using a module that defines a class called "vText".  I don't know such a
module, I don't think it's in the standard library so it would be useful
if you gave more details about the context.

A quick google for "vtext python" yields something about an iCalendar
package for python.  Is it what you are using?
