"Gaming" is a transfer of money from the poor to those with wealth and power.

It is an insidious blight on our society.

In no way would I support an extension to any "gaming area" as such is never in the public interest, but the interest of the publican.

The Alexandria Hotel did well on a policy of being a family- and pet-friendly venue with no gaming. Whilst we celebrated it being saved from developers we anxiously await its re-birth.

The Rose of Australia could do well to adopt this principal and instead offer space for live music or other worthwhile uses.
