Great programme featuring @ConceptWin's Alex.
Some people really do no need to educate themselves about what #gamblingdisorder is all about.

This is today’s society. Blame anyone else. He could have declined them. Only has himself to blame.

What I didn't say on the show was that after discovering hundreds of texts, emails and even a flyer through the door, after lots of self-excluding, led me to realise vulnerable people are being targeted. Shame the Gambling Commission aren't enforcing their own rules enough.

Yet he was the one that set up 75 accounts to lose that money? Always someone's else's fault 🙄🙄🙄
