Casino chaos

Two lessons from the U turn by Gordon Brown on a casino for Manchester, or anywhere, and his plans to "reflect" on whether it's the best way to regenerate.

First, he was clearly never a fan of the idea, it will be killed off.

Two, however transparent a process, however much you play by the rules of engagement, the government record on delivery of policy goals in the regions is to constantly renege on promises.

Blackpool should get on with it and build smaller casinos - like Manchester 235 - and some proper leisure centres.
