Gambling Sense

Here in the UK with arguably one of the most liberal attitudes to gambling and sports betting, a collection of the leading gambling companies ban betting adverts in live sports broadcasts. Ostensibly, to assuage government and public opinion about the unfettered promotion of football betting to young kids and the vulnerable. Here is the rub: it is too late and it ignores, the most important issue, individual accountability. Just as signs on bridges warning people about the dangers of suicide, do little to stop suicides. If you don’t focus on really meaningful actions, educating people, and holding them individually to account for their actions, you merely dance around the problem.
