Lies, Lies and damn statistics. A man from Ladbrokes betting shops denied that there is direct correlation between the revenue of bookmakers and areas areas of poverty when defending the issue of £100 stake machines. In comparison, I thought the ‘city’ is just one big bookies but for people with lots more money. Whereas pawnbrokers help fuel some bookmakers, white collar crime; fraud ghost companies help fuel the city. Scales of economy.
Yet one is deemed as a problem and looked down upon the other a lucrative career for a chosen Etonian Oxbridge few.
In this time of struggle it is recognised that gambling can increase but what is more worrying is the ease now you can get access to ‘dangerous’ money, with the increase of cheque cashing places, payday loans and pawnbrokers. Bookies are like pubs, they are an issue if you have a problem but the ease in which you can legally access money is more threatening.
No-one is going to help us, the state will only help those it wants, and it definitely doesn’t want to help the poor. We must help ourselves, be disciplined, support each other. Fuck the State and fuck it’s judgemental nature.
We are the Gods of this Fucking Land – I am my brothers man.
