Good news, Welshcakes! They have only borrowed the money from the taxpayers? Excellent. I look forward to them paying it back when they get an honest job.

Can it really be called gambling?

I see gambling as you have a chance, albeit a small one of winning. These guys never get anything right. It's almost as if they sit down with card sharks, get ripped off time after time, yet still think they know what they are doing and go back for more.
