The UK’s Culture MP Tessa Jowell has commented togel that the UK government’s plans to regulate online gambling will do best at protecting children and vulnerable people.
“Gambling is a diverse, vibrant and innovative industry and a popular leisure activity enjoyed in many forms by millions of people in Britain today,” Jowell said. “And this leisure environment is also a source of employment and wealth for many towns and cities.
This bill aims to ensure that the public can enjoy that choice to the full and with confidence. It recognizes that adults need to be trusted and treated like adults.”
Her stance, and that of her government, is completely unlike that of the US, which she commented was comparable to alcohol prohibition in the early 1920s.
“Broadly speaking we have three choices,” she said. “You can prohibit, like the US, do nothing or regulate, like we have.”
She added: “America should have learnt the lessons of prohibition. The Volstead Act was meant to stop alcohol from causing harm, but in practice it forced otherwise law-abiding customers into the hands of the bootleggers.
Jowell also warned the real danger is that offshore sites which are unregulated by the country’s laws will become the ‘modern day equivalent of speakeasies’, increasing the risk of fraud and exploitation in the industry.

Last week Gold retaliated with a court briefing stating that the agreement was “nothing more than a promise to make a gift.”
Richard Schonfeld, Leyser’s attorney, said Gold’s position is “absurd” and the fact that Gold admitted to the deal provides affirmation that Leyser is entitled to the $6 million. Schonfeld said in an interview “We’re glad they finally took a position.” Adding “Even though we were extremely confident in our case we are more confident now that we will prevail.”
The real issue at stake here is whether a verbal agreement is binding.
Leyser’s claim is that Gold’s seat was paid for by an internet poker company in return for him finding celebrities to also play in the tournament wearing the company’s logo.
Leyser further claims that Gold asked him to help with this in return for a share of his seat and any potential winnings. Leyser held up his end of the bargain by finding two actors to play in the tournament and wear the …
