And, remember, we always bait responsibly
ALMOST as annoying as Spurs’ capitulation in the North London derby on Sunday was the bombardment of TV betting adverts before, during and after the game.
Look, I don’t want to stop anyone having a flutter, but it sometimes seems as if gambling is about the only area of economic activity in which Britain still leads the world.
I’m not a gambling man, but I know plenty of people who are. Some of them would bet on two flies crawling up a wall. So it came as no great surprise to learn that the latest ‘sport’ to attract the bookies is badger-baiting.
Yep, you did read that right. Badgerbaiting is apparently being streamed live on the internet for the benefit of determined punters. After the mauling Spurs got at the hands of Arsenal, I’d welcome half an hour of live badgerbaiting as a little light relief. How long before Sky Sports picks up Premier League badger-baiting, maybe as a pay-per-view event?
Can’t wait for the half-time adverts from Ray Winstone, complete with Wind In The Willows waistcoat.
