Hi 19chris51 wilke is a nut case. I earnt my money and paid my taxes , which the present government waste, but that is another story.
What right do they ( government ) have to tell me how to spend my hard earned.
We have the sin taxes, cigs, booze now pokies. This was tried in Canada and did not work. Why is it this mob only deals with miniorities, gay marriage, problem gamblers 0.3 % of population etc??? I have grown up children and was not a heavy gambler during my married life when I had children under 21 but now at 63
It is my money and I will use it as I see fit, I smoke and drink and have a flutter on the pokies when I want, it is not up to a sniviling , bully like wilke or anyone else to tell me what to do with my money.
Clubs provide a place for the elderly to meet and support local sports , cheap meals that a lot of pensioners take advantage of, me too. Look at the number of people they employ. Lets see labor party for the working man/woman? What does the working person enjoy? A majority, having a drink, having a smoke having a flutter. Lets face reality if you want to gamble their are lots more than pokies, ie. horses, dogs, trots, on line poker, bingo and the fly crawling up the wall. You are right commo state. Reply
