World news – Day six and still no responses to pokies from either party


Both Peter Gutwein and Rebecca White are deliberately dodging their respective positions on pokies with Tasmanian voters.

The Prime Minister refuses to tell the Tasmanians what tax rate for casino pokies has been negotiated with the Farrell family. The contract runs until 2043 and could cost the state budget hundreds of millions of dollars.

Peter Gutwein claims to have answered the question and that the position of the Liberals has been made « perfectly clear ».

Rebecca White, meanwhile, has none Indicated that Labor has a different pokies policy than the Liberals.

They are both capable of following the dictates of the gambling industry and treating Tasmanian voters like cups.

The federal group seems to be the not fully capturing the deadly severity of the health risk in their pokies.
