Bill Stefaniak has put out another peculiar media release. This time weeping for the loss to sport of poker machine revenue.
“I am calling on the Treasurer, also the Sports Minister and Minister responsible for Gambling, to ensure any reduction in gaming revenue at the Club level does not impact on sporting organisations in the ACT.
Um, OK, so the best way to fund sports is to skin the cash from credulous people with poor maths skills, allow unrepresentative committees to skim the lion’s share, with a kickback to government and political parties, and drip feed the remaining portion back to a select group of organised and well connected “Sports”?
On this reasoning I look forward to Bill’s defence of compulsory student unionism.
