    Can’t believe what I am reading over the last week – It seems Gordon Brown wants to systimatically destroy what good Tony Blair did for the gaming industry –

    Gordon Brown to Ditch Broadcast Gambling Advertising
    16-07-07

    The new UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown is reportedly about to dismiss plans to allow gaming companies to advertise on television and radio, according to reports from the UK’s Times newspaper.

    Excellent point! Maybe it is good news disguised! My worry is this sends a message that gambling is bad rather than merely entertainment

    Sure I agree with you on that and whats to stop them from going even further down the road and doing what the U.S did. Having said that the more people on useing the internet to find there gambling needs the better.

    Yes, I would also have to agree that this moves sends a message that gambling is bad, it also suggests that Brown has a rather negative veiw of gambling and maybe this is just the beginning of a few more changes for the worse…. :Cry: especially as he has blocked any moves to build that super casino!

    Lets hope that this does boost online interest and that Brown is just keeping all vices with an age limit (gambling, cigarettes etc) off our screens to protect the young and the innocent. :confused:

    Gordon Brown’s apparent determination to review gambling policy has serious implications not only for racing but across sport. The prime minister’s declaration last week that there would be no super casino in Manchester looks like the start of a retreat on the liberalisation of gaming legislation pushed through by Tessa Jowell.
