Flutter Entertainment & Tom Watson tie-up provokes further comment

Comments by David Clifton feature in an EGR Intel article published today and entitled “Does Flutter’s Tom Watson tie-up make sense?”

Commenting on the recruitment by Flutter Entertainment of former Labour deputy leader Tom Watson as an adviser with a focus on responsible gambling, David is quoted as follows:

I regard Watson’s appointment by Flutter as strategically sensible. He is not a “vocal anti-gambling campaigner”as the FT claimed last week. He clearly has a genuine interest in the subject of safer gambling and some of the gambling reform suggestions made by him while deputy leader of the Labour Party now seem worthy of serious consideration, most certainly when compared with some of the more extreme ‘knee-jerk’ recommendations of the Gambling Related Harm All-Party Parliamentary Group.
