Labour’s Ed Milliband; he of the Marxist parents and ‘Strictly Socialist’ upbringing, has made a statement which all sensible people would applaud.
Seems as though the Culture, Media and Sport select committee, came out with a report which advocated further liberalisation of gambling laws.
So adenoidal Ed stands up, and in a direct rebuttal of Labour’s past stances on gambling, casinos, etc, stated that ” I was sceptical about supercasinos originally. Of course there are casinos – and nobody is talking about getting rid of those – but I always thought there must be other routes to economic development and economic growth than through loads more casinos.’
For the first time, a spark of sense from a Labour leader; will we, can we expect more of the same; or will this just be a ‘red’ flash in the Labour pan?
