New Gambling Advertisement

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by OSLO, Sep 3, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can someone explain to me without cynicism how you can have a government that discourages smoking by banning its advertisement and smoking in public places, bans advertising alcohol, yet passes a law to allow gambling advertisements? And logic there is.....?
  2. Probably because not enough have been hooked by gambling yet.

    Call me cynical, but they'll need to encourage people to gamble at the start; once enough people have become addicted and the taxes and backhanders start rolling in, then they'll start banning advertisements to show "they are concerned".
  3. Well, they've got to be able to replace the lost taxes from something (and why not gambling ?) once all the smokers give it up .. !!
