Psychiatrist Warns About the Expansion of UK Gambling
By Earl
According to the Rolling Good, a ‘... top psychiatrist has warned that [British] Government proposals to relax gambling laws amounted to a ‘gambling promoter's charter’.’ One Dr. Moran is worried about the fact that with the new law on gambling in effect in the UK, it will be easier to open casinos (including online casinos) and other gambling venues and a greater range of games will appear, some offering ‘unlimited jackpot prizes ... [and that} The incidence of excessive gambling is directly related to both the availability of gambling facilities and the commercial pressures encouraging excess ... The new proposals [the new law, implementing the Budd Report] favour economic and commercial considerations at the expense of important social ones ... They will undermine any attempt to encourage moderate gambling and will inevitably result in increased casualties.’
