Harriet Harman’s Gambling Problem

Earlier this month Harriet Harman attacked the apparent evils of gambling, laying in to Labour’s own record on betting shops and casinos while she was in office:

“I think we were wrong to liberalise gambling. We have made a mistake and we need to do something about it. If we had known then what we know now, we wouldn’t have allowed this. It’s not just ruining the high street, it’s ruining people’s lives.”

All bets are off for Labour’s deputy leader however, with Luciana Berger revealing the party’s new line on gambling on a visit to a local Labdrokes:

“I was interested to hear and learn more about the betting industry and I was impressed with not only the level of service and activities provided, but also with the responsible procedures in place to tackle under-age and problem gambling.”

Craps…
