“Southlands developer: We would welcome a casino” is the title of an interesting article in yesterday’s gazette.
Could this be a planted question based on a historically controversial subject that will stir up discussion and sell papers? If so, how much of a factor will the religious community play this time around in attacking the very nature of any gambling other then church sanctioned bingo?
Could it be a seed planted by the developer having come to the island with a preconception that a casino could (or would) be a part of their hotel? Will Premier Brown announce that we’re going to get a ‘Special Development Order’ style change in legislature to allow for a casino and woo the people into going along with the project?
Beyond all of these questions, one question will undoubtedly rise to the top.
Should we have a casino?
For that question, which is most important?
- The answer to the question?
- How the question is asked?
- Who answers it?
