Would the Tv network that has been trying for days to make something out of how the Prime Minister has condemned many to penury by encouraging more opportunities at Sky City, incidentally not many of those disadvantaged among us who have a problem with "pokoies" will ever go there, be the same two channels that week on week promote "Lotto".
I would warrant that more "families at risk" will drop money they desperately need down the toilet in the vain hope of winning a million or two at the Lotto Shop than will ever even know where to go to access Sky City machines.
To get an international convention center at no cost to taxpayers and or rate payers when both those groups will gain additional revenue from the gambling and the enhanced ratable values, as will the wider community throughout the country, must be an inspired move.
