@Whining victim groups
Firstly, I’d like to say I’m not a Sally Army person, thus this is the opinion of someone not in their "whiny 'victim' group".
The Sally Army are a very caring group, who help many people who succumb to addictions of various sorts e.g. gambling, alcohol, drugs. Now most people enjoy the occasional flutter, but there are people out there who get caught up in gambling easily and very quickly they’ve maxed out their mortgage and spent the repayment money too. Suddenly they are to put it bluntly, fucked.
Until the gambling establishments can stop people doing this then restricted access to legalised gambling is the only safe way forward, and frankly, I don’t think that the gambling establishments are going to cut off their best earners.
Now, there are always fuckwits like you, who think that it’s people’s personal choice to mess their lives up, but look around you, half the people in this pit aren’t capable of protecting themselves from the influences of the society around them so will always become unaffordably indebted.
Perhaps rather than telling the Sally Army people to “Stick to your daytime television and crimewatch with cocoa” you should leave your solitary uncaring life for a moment and walk amongst the people who need to be looked after. If you are still an uncaring unfeeling bastard after that, come see me and I’ll do what has to be done, I’ll put you down like the animal that you are.
