David Shearer: Asian Gamblers OK

David Shearer-Gambling For Asians OK P1-BI186_JUNKET_G_20120919203003

After the SkyCity box hypocrisy of his Labour MPs David Shearer’s been busy explaining his party’s position on the convention centre this week.

On BFM he explained how it wasn’t the new gaming tables Labour are upset about – because the Asian high rollers use those.

It’s all the pokie problem gamblers from west and south Auckland that need to be saved from themselves.

So Labour’s policy now seems to be that Asian problem gamblers who don’t live in West and South Auckland are okay.  Good to have that cleared up.

And by the way, when was Shearer last at SkyCity to make these insightful observations?

Just asking how he knows.

    Good to know we don’t have problem gamblers on the North Shore.

    It’s because he can tax them and then throw the proceeds out to all of the freeloading degenerates who’re stupid enough to vote for him.

    It must be liarbore policy to say or do 10 insane things everyday, they’re been filling their quota lately.

    Just wondering since I haven’t been to a casino in 17 years. Are all of the pokie machines in use at any given time? & if they aren’t does that mean that all the extra pokie machines are going to have that many more customers using them just because they are there, or is it just more variety for the ones that are already addicted, & I’ll bet the only reason people from south & west Auckland are at sky city is because a number of years ago the number of pokie machines in their local pubs was restricted. Anyway people are always going to have their vices, & you can’t change some people unless they experience a mighty change in their lives.

    He thought the symbols on the card tables were Chinese writing and those living in West and South Auckland could not understand them?
