Bookies Pay Out to Two-Faced Tristram

Tristram Julian William Hunt, son of Lord Hunt of Chesterton, is always one to speak up for the working man. The Labour frontbencher cares so deeply about the plight of the downtrodden that he has even put principle before party and slammed his own Labour colleagues’ record in government on gambling:

“It is a scandal that after 12 years of a Labour government there are more betting shops, lap-dancing clubs, gambling arcades and casinos than when they came to power… the Gambling Act 2005 began a wholesale deregulation of the high street by allowing a free for all in betting shops. A Labour government felt it had no philosophical right to arbitrate on the morality of mass gambling and its wretched social consequences.”
