IF ANYBODY is not convinced that gambling doesn't pay, I advise them to read that Diane Coates, joint owner of Bet 365, the online gambling site, paid herself £265 million last year.

It is totally obscene that one person can claim that amount of money as a salary.

I read she pays her taxes and she is kind to charities but honestly, £265 million? Why not pay her staff more or run a home for addicted gamblers or give gamblers back a percentage of what they lost over the year?

If Ms Coates can make this in one year from gambling, she should take the Brexit deal on and whatever she recommends we should accept because she knows a winner when she sees one and has the money stats to back it up.
