Labor has been forced to reveal its complete abandonment of principle and capitulation to the gambling industry, but the Premier continues to be slippery about the tax rate Federal Group will pay on pokies in casinos.

If the Premier doesn’t tell Tasmanians before they go to the polls, he’ll have no mandate for his government’s pokies legislation should he win majority.

Labor and Rebecca White have betrayed Tasmanians harmed by pokies and sold out to their corporate gambling donors.

When will Peter Gutwein tell the truth about the sweet deal his government has struck with the Farrell family at the expense of Tasmania’s social well-being and the State budget for twenty years to come?
