Council is once again leading the way in protecting the poor and the gullible
from the dubious attractions of Fixed Odds Betting Terminals.
They have done it before but this time have the support of 93 English Councils.
It is unlikely that Bexley is one of them because Bexley’s views on robbing the poor and the gullible is entirely different to Newham’s or any other right thinking public body.
The reason is not hard to discern, Bexley’s Cabinet Member for Public Realm is the country’s leading advocate of FOBTs. He is spokesman for the Association of British Bookmakers.
