I cannot understand how on the one hand the government through taxation seeks to help the worst off while liberalising the gambling laws with the other when the evidence suggests gambling addiction hits the worst off worst of all.

If you agree – and particularly if you live in the UK – please sign the Campaign Against Super-Casinos Expansion’s online petition.

I wrote a fairly extensive post about the gambling bill when it first came up in 2004 with some of the evidence against it.

  1. Thanks for this David, I’ve signed it and circulated it. Cannot believe that this govt is encouraging even more addiction and crime problems on top of those we already have. (hmm, or maybe I *can* believe it. how depressing)
