Quite right Swear Engine!
These toilet papers just blow everything out of proportion.
The only thing our Government are considering banning,are gambling companies (which are based overseas),from advertising in the UK.
And what's all this about foreign companies?
Most of these companies are British.
They just moved offshore, to avoid paying UK taxes.
Nowhere,has anyone mentioned anything to do with banning internet poker,or any other form of internet gambling.
It has been suggested,that the Government will impose stricter rules on internet gambling companies,to ensure that no-one under the age of 18 can open accounts.
Also,that accounts can only be funded using debit cards,and not credit cards.
Personally,I think these would be two good acts of legislation.
