Gambling adverts on the television

Advertisements

Okay am going to rant about gambling adverts on the television. Every hour of every day there are adverts for online casino, online sports play and even bingo. Every day the news tells us that the British economy is not looking good. People have less money to spend, especially those on a low income.
There has definitely been an increased targeting of gambling adverts at everyday people.

 

I don’t understand why this is allowed to happen. Part of me thinks that these people should know better. However, a great percentage of the time these habits can have a detrimental effect to not only the economy, more importantly the families of normal people. You are not allowed to advertise cigarettes on the television any more as they can ruin your life. What about gambling?

Mind you after thinking about it just what could be done?

Maybe I’ve been naive and never noticed it before. Or, maybe I am getting old and cantankerous…?
