Do you want fries with that Pokie machine?


Nothing shows up the farce of pokie machine regulation than the case of a pokie bar pretending to be a takeaway shop in Otara.

MANA vice-president John Minto wrote to the Department of Internal Affairs asking how a pokie bar can use takeaways as a front and was told that while the license was cancelled, the DIA were allowing this company to remain open while they appealed to the Gambling Commission.

The DIA should shut this joke down now rather than allow it to continue operating but seeing that this Government seem to have an addiction to gambling, turning a blind eye to a pokie bar to masquerade as a takeaway's is the least of National's sins.

takeaways and pokies- surely this is contravening some health regulation let alone gambling laws, it sounds pretty grubby really
