The ugly face of Labour's 'Gambling can be fun' reforms of the licensing laws.

People losing their entire wages in seconds to the 'crack cocaine' machines, seething in agony and reactive violence, is all that is left for expression.

Not just Labour. The Tories are in power now and TV advertising has been stepped up by a couple or more, notches. It's not called gambling, but playing.

The Labour/Tory system also allows companies to give the poor a loan and pay high interest rates. In this case, the company is betting the Player, will not default/win, by disappearing with the cash. Either way, even with deaults, the company eventually ends up with more cash than it started with.

Labour brought these 'gambling can be fun' rules in in the first place.

I suppose it is like when Thatcher closed the mines, Labour did not reopen them when they were elected in. Is that what you mean Sticky?
