trouble ahead for the Victorian

government after it gave approval

for a pub to build a children's

play area within sight of its poker

machines. And there is outrage

especially after the government

authority gave Neagle clear,

defending its decision by saying

it's better than having the kids

like in the car-park or stop a It's

definitely a dangerous practice.

I don't want the kids of today to

become a problem gamblers or

tomorrow. The Bees could be part of

the learning experience. Approved
