UPDATE: David Clifton is interviewed in the May 2018 edition of iGaming Times, answering the following questions:

  • How much of the Commission’s strategy is determined by the views of the chief executive?
  • How would you summarise Sarah Harrison’s approach to regulation during her tenure and the impact, good or bad, on the industry?
  • Have you detected any change in tone or intent at all from Neil McArthur?

The article, containing David’s answers to the above questions, can be accessed here.
