Another non-environmental wonder

UK nonprofit Fairer Gambling released a report this week revealing that betting shops are making billions more in profit from the country's poorest areas with the highest unemployment. And who better to make a comment on the divide than a Tory MP (John Redwood, Conservative MP for Wokingham in Berkshire, via The Guardian):

"I put it down to the fact that poor people believe there's one shot to get rich. They put getting rich down to luck and think they can take a gamble...They also have time on their hands. My voters are too busy working hard to make a reasonable income."
