  • Industry and personal ‘gifts’ are ruining our democracy
  • Yet another gambling company breaking advertising codes
  • We don’t even know how many problem gamblers there are
  • Gambling industry attitudes are so bad it stunned leader of Saville enquiry
  • Ladbrokes in bother again
  • Problem gambling reaches a tipping point in professional football
  • 10 betting shops within yards of each other

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