February 5, 2008 - Gordon Brown what have you done!? Oh how I thought you were going to take Mother Britain in a new direction! Thank you for getting out of cahoots with George Bush and the U.S., but I dare say what were you thinking to amend the UK Gambling Act and rob good'ol Manchester from its rightful super casino. That's like taking food from the blind and money from the poor (no offense Manchester).

Alright, allow me to step off my soapbox of disgruntled venting and tell you what's going on...as if you didn't hear already. So our beloved Prime Minister has drafted a letter to the Scottish and Welsh governments describing his decision of revision, if you will. Yep. Instead of the original eight small casinos, eight large casinos and one super-sized casino (minus the fry's), as mandated by the 2005 UK Gambling Act, Gordo is calling for sixteen small UK casinos.

Craftily done I must say, the revision has charities and religious groups on their feet applauding. Or at least the announcement that PM Brown would be reviewing the Gambling Act did. Not sure whether church groups are satisfied with the ruling or not (still more gambling but with less intensity), however, I am quite certain that Manchester is outraged...and rightly so.

Council leaders in Manchester had tirelessly worked to draft a proposal for the Department of Culture, Media and Sport, for which it won over several other contenders. In what would have certainly helped lift a dilapidated area in Manchester into economic prosperity and stability, Brown's revision now leaves Manchester in the dumps. Hey, I don't mean to sound overly dramatic. That's what it is.
