    I'm surprised that there are suddenly 79 new operators applying for Dutch gambling licences. This will always be the case with new operators wanting licences so they can become a certified working part of our industry. But more importantly it will be interesting to see who will be allowed to receive a licence as per their background check will reveal about them.


    The fact that they're now also getting an Ombudsman to step in to help is just too much.

    I think it's a bit too early to worry about the possibility of a UK Gambling ombudsman. The Guardian article is about a proposal to have one by the opposition Labour party. Labour could get elected at the next election - maybe - but if they get elected anytime soon they will be overwhelmed by Brexit-related issues (as the current Conservative government has been for years now) and it seems unlikely any major domestic reforms will get through. Also, any election could return a hung parliament and then there's no telling if any of Labour's less important proposals would even get considered. I suspect this is just a campaign tactic - Labour want to show they care about problem gambling.
