slot machinesRecently I’m pleased to see that a number of stories I have written about have panned out the way I argued that they should. I found out yesterday that another story went down the only rational path available. I wrote about gambler Graham Calvert taking a bookmaker to court for breaching it’s duty of care towards him after he lost wads of money on bets. You can see my original article here:

The case has been heard and despite the judge agreeing with some of Calvert’s case he decided that ultimately Calvert would have squandered his money in some other way. You can read the news story here:

Rationality prevails once more, and I feel a little less of an alien in this country.
