@Anon, I fully empathise with your sentiments. Gambling is a curse on society just as alcoholism is.Terrence Tuesday 27 November, 2012 - 6:11 AM
Anon posting here, I have no sympathy for your father at all. There are adequate resources available for those who want to get help to curb the gambling endemic. He chose to run up debt, lose his wife and home. So let it be. He piddled in the pickles and he has to wear it. One only has utter sympathy for their family.Justin J James Sunday 25 November, 2012 - 6:47 PM
Look if these foolish creeps want to gamble their life away then let them be. At the end of the day they, like the rest of us intelligent people, all end up the same - in a cemetery or a crematorium. What difference does it make? NOTHING. They choose to live like that then let them be. If they, like criminals and other dunces want to change their lives, there are resources there to help. Seek and you shall find!John Moses Sunday 25 November, 2012 - 6:37 PM
I remember a survey in the '80s stating that if you were a heavy gambler there was a 110% chance that you were a Catholic!
Is that right?Bikinis not Burkas Saturday 24 November, 2012 - 9:53 AM
The Gambling laws need to be tougher and I don't care what others think of my opinion.
All my life I have watched my father gamble never accepting the fact he has a problem.
in early 2000 my parents were forced to sell their home to pay off a $80,000 or end up losing their house completely, then last year my Mother found out my father had run up more gambling debts to $25,000 and only just recently she found out my father ran up in 12 months gambling debts of $17,000. My mother has since walked out on my father, she is fed up with it.
What the government needs to realise is gambling just isn't one form ( pokies) like my father he does the pokies, the dogs, horse racing and the trots. ALL areas of gambling need to be addressed, not just one single section, because only trying to fix a solution to the pokies won't stop them going to the other areas of gambling, WAKE UP politicians!!!!Anon Friday 23 November, 2012 - 2:04 PM
Senator Nick Xenophon needs to be realistic, there is very serious gambling happening all over the place, not just with his pokies obsession, damned gambling, its all gambling. Why do we need gambling at all? Why not ban gambling altogether, good riddance to gambling! i.e. Bugger Jamie Packer's new Sydney gambling casino that most all politicians endorse!! Uncaring governments all want the gambling taxes for revenue purposes and do not care less about all the losers! Like most politicians, I bet Nick Xenophon is playing silly buggers again and is merely pissing in the wind!Aldwin Thursday 22 November, 2012 - 8:49 PM
