A Time Wasting and Expensive Addiction

Publicity drive by Derek Webb for fairer gambling.   http://fairergambling.org/

A letter of complaint from Conservative MP Philip Davies about Mr Webb. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandconsumer/9686733/MPs-in-attack-on-campaign-against-betting-shop-machines.html

‘The campaign by Mr Webb, who is a top 20 Lib Dem donor, having given the party £25,000 in the past 13 months, comes at a sensitive time for the bookies.’   Apparently a parliamentary review (Davies onboard) is now in place after evidence relating to problem gambling and betting machines (the fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs) in the shops the “crack cocaine of gambling”)came to light.

I’d say don’t give money over to these things and therefore agree with Mr Webb but don’t agree with the manner in which he became a millionaire in first place – on money people could ill afford.

And as for Warnie advertising gambling.  Shane on you Warnie.
