Doyle, Martin, 1956- :Salvation for gamblers. 24 March 2014
Scoop (Firm)
Cartoon depicts a Salvation Army officer celebrating a bingo prize of 5 million. Nearby a gambler tells him he's "on a roll". In the background are people at fruit machines called 'Looz'. Commentary from the artist states "The sudden change in fortunes of the Problem Gambling Foundation and the 'suddenly lucky' Salvation Army mirrors the fickleness of real-life gambling. Despite the PCF having run the problem gambling services for 20 years, no explanation of this monumental change has been given to the public [taxpayers]". Refers to the cut of funding for the Problem Gambling Foundation, and the proposal that the Salvation Army's Oasis service be the national provider. Quantity: 1 digital cartoon(s).
