    The proximity of the General Election played into the hands of the anti-gambling lobby yesterday - the Tories threatened to scupper the Gambling Bill if Tessa The Bitch Jowell didn't agree to slash to a bare minimum the projected influx of "super casinos", and since Labour are desperate to get as much legislation out the way as they can to concentrate on the election, they caved in.

    The Daily Mail is also claiming victory for their anti-gambling bill campaign - with some justification.

    The question now is: will Tony Blair refund all those lobbying dollars to the Vegas mobsters? :):):)

    "One 'Super Casino' Deal Saves Gambling Bill

    By Gavin Cordon, PA Whitehall Editor

    Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell today conceded that there will only be one regional super casino, instead of the eight previously planned by ministers.

    Ms Jowell accepted the cut in a deal with shadow culture secretary John Whittingdale to save the Governments Gambling Bill before Parliament dissolves for the General Election.

    The location of the new casino will be decided by an independent panel.

    The agreement was welcomed by Mr Whittingdale.

    Regional casinos are an entirely new concept for the UK and there are real fears about the impact they may have on crime and gambling addiction, he said.

    We have therefore told the Government that we will accept the establishment of just one regional casino as a prototype, in order to assess its impact.

    Its location should be a leisure resort where the regeneration potential is greatest. The case for locating such a casino in Blackpool is very strong.

    The Government has accepted our proposal and on this basis we are willing to allow the Bill to complete its passage.

    The Bill will contain a provision allowing a future government to raise the number of regional casinos back up to eight, if there is an affirmative vote in both Houses of Parliament.

    The Bill is intended to strengthen the regulatory regime with the creation of a powerful new Gambling Commission, which will for the first time control new forms of gambling such as internet betting."

    Well I have heard that now this bill has been pushed through, they are thinking of increasing the numbers, to around 8.

    Blackpool and Cardiff being the favourite destinations for the first 'Super Casino'
