    Default British PM resigns after 45 days, prompting further doubt for Gambling Act review

    Liz Truss has resigned as prime minister and will step down after a week-long emergency contest to find her successor. This follows a turbulent 45 days in office during which Truss’s mini-budget crashed the markets, she lost two key ministers and "shed the confidence of almost all her own MPs."

    Of course, this puts even more doubt into the on-again, off-again, much-anticipated Gambling Act Review.

    It was less than a month ago that with a new PM taking over the Gambling Act Review was heading for the bin. But just last week it was reported that the release of the white paper was weeks away.

    But with today's news all bets are off (pun intended) regarding when or if we will ever see that white paper.

    From The Guardian:

    A new leader will be chosen over the course of the next week, Brady told reporters, suggesting the party membership could have a role in the election. The 1922 executive and the Conservative party board will meet at 4pm to decide how the election will proceed – but it could include requiring candidates to meet a high threshold of MP nominations.

    Brady said they hoped a new leader would be in place by 28 October, allowing the scheduled fiscal event to take place on 31 October – just three days after the new prime minister is in place.

    It's one hell of a mess I know that much....Boris has been backed in from 25/1 to 3/1 to regain his old title after a short sabbatical. I kid you not!

    I'd be surprised if we even get the white paper next year. Industry will be happy with another delay but there is a risk that if this government doesn't get it done then it will be a labour government that does it and if that happens the restrictions will be a lot more stringent.

    Interesting with Rishi Sunak taking over as PM now, he's previously been a supporter of the industry to a certain degree: https://www.racingpost.com/news/chan...-review/545448
