We need to fight betting addiction GAMBLING addiction it is not about the amount, it is about the addiction, and limiting fixed-odds gambling machines in bookmakers shops will not cure the addiction.

OK, it might take longer to lose the money in the machines, but with shops open all day it will still be the same result.

I do not know if all of those experts have realised it, but with online betting that is outside of British law, the gambling facility is still there, but instead of employing British workers you will probably be employing someone in an attic in Gibraltar or China.

You need to cure the compulsion to gamble, not the amount that you can lose.
