Valentine's story

I was always chasing my losses, consistently losing my part time wage on a weekly basis, resulting in further borrowing for rent/food etc.

My neighbours from the Melbourne Prahran Housing commission flats lose on weekly basis as well... some do not have money for food.

After losing their money, they line up at Centrelink for additional help or go to the Salvation Army to get cheap bread.

I think the Government has to close such "parasitic" pokie businesses, particularly around commissioned housing areas.
