Have you noticed how the Clubs Australia PR campaigners are now claiming that they’re really concerned about problem gamblers, honestly, they just don’t think anything on the table is actually going to be effective in helping them? But that they do want to solve the problem and help the gamblers they’ve spent the last two decades exploiting? Hey, we’re only objecting to this plan to limit our ability to exploit them on their behalves because we don’t think it will work as effectively as something that in no way limits our ability to exploit them. Goodness we’ve got a lot of money with which to fight this plan.
It’s pretty convincing stuff.
