I don’t need to be told how much I can bet

Andy 2

Breaking news! The government is trying to control our spending.

The latest attack on healthy gamblers is the threat to take away our right to control how much we can bet with maximum deposit limits.

Of course some people have problems with gambling and it is right that we should help them, but this takes regulation on gambling too far. I’m not a child and I don’t need the government parenting me at the encouragement of the overzealous anti-gambling lobby. There is no reason for adults to have their pocket money allocated by the government!

I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Safe and responsible gamblers across Britain are tired of this juvenile treatment. The government should trust its people and at the very least continue to let us exercise our basic right to control how much we spend on leisure activities

I'm Andy and I live in Ossett Wakefield. I have been married for 23 years and have 2 children.

I work for a local family run business which is a 10 minute walk from where I live, and have worked there 24 years starting at the bottom of the ladder and progressed through the company to now being their production manager.

Throughout the lockdown with people isolating and ordering more things online we have been extremely busy and sometimes it can be very stressful so I look forward to going home and watching horse racing and football on TV. I love having a small wager on the horses and get great satisfaction when I have picked the winning horse.
