Tony Blair and casinosBlair also commented on the moral opposition of the new 17 casinos, reminding them that there are so many ways for gambling online, that the new casinos could hardly be considered a threat to the society's moral fiber.

Last month the House of Lords (the upper house of the U.K. Government, equivalent to the United States Senate) rejected his proposal for the location of all 17 casinos, mostly because of Manchester being chosen ad the location of the Britain's first super casino, while there was an overwhelming support for Blackpool.

Blair also said that new proposals will be drafted after the May 3rd elections.
