Government Bidding for Gambling Lobby

The Tasmanian Liberal Government is doing the gambling lobby’s bidding with the new tax and licence deal on poker machines.

Federal Group get their tax rate cut in half. Every pub gets a windfall increase in value for every pokies licence received, and no harm minimisation measures such as $1 maximum bets.

The end result is that the Tasmanian taxpayer gets it in the neck again.
