A bit better this week, because there isn’t a suicide in the coverage, but official figures show losses for the UK population are up again;

  • Industry and personal ‘gifts’ are ruining our democracy
  • How advertising is used to normalise gambling
  • Bookies generate stories with no evidence to take your money
  • New Gambling Commission figures show big increase in losses for gamblers
  • Gambling self exclusion online grows in an attempt to stop losing everything

The following are all the links to the media coverage proving we’re not making it up.

ps:  Does NOT include all the media coverage of violence and robberies in betting shops.
