Great Britain’s Head of Gambling Commission, Neil McArthur, Resigns

Neil McArthur, the head of the Gambling Commission in Great Britain, decided to resign with immediate effect. Thus, Great Britain’s gambling regulator is now left without a chief executive amidst the government’s review of gambling laws.

McArthur’s resignation comes at a critical juncture for the regulator, especially when it has been under fire for its failure to rein in VIP schemes, ban gambling on credit cards, and adapt to the rise of online and mobile gaming, among other issues. There’s also criticism of the regulator for its failure to give proper oversight of the Football Index.

The Growing Dissatisfaction Over the Gambling Commission

According to a government report, the Gambling Commission is struggling to protect people from gambling-related harm. The National Audit Office stated that the regulator has not been able to adjust to technological changes such as the rise of online and mobile gaming involving gambling like sports betting sites or mobile casino apps. In fact, due to its funding constraints, which is an annual budget of £19m, it has not been able to properly regulate an industry that took £11.3bn from punters last year.

As said by the NTO, it’s “constrained by factors outside its control, including inflexible funding and a lack of evidence on how developments in the industry affect consumers” and that it’s “unlikely to be fully effective in addressing risks and harms to consumers within the current arrangement.”

McArthur’s Resignation

Because of these growing problems, many have voiced their concern regarding the Gambling Commission’s way of handling things. Labour MP Carolyn Harris, in particular, has made her stand on this.

“The Gambling Commission is not fit for purpose and Neil McArthur [its chief executive] should resign in the light of this report. The commission is simply not up to the job of regulating the gambling industry, particularly the online sector, parts of which seem to operate like the wild west,” said Harris.

Because of McArthur’s immediate resignation, Sarah Gardner and Sally Jones will jointly become acting chief executives of the regulator. They are  the deputy chief executive and chief operating officer, respectively. But, there will be no hiring for a permanent chief executive until the appointment of a new chair. In this case, Billy Moyes, the current chairman’s office, will end later this year.

The Former Chief Executive’s Take on the Matter

According to McArthur, “I am proud of everything the Gambling Commission has achieved during my 15 years with the organisation. We have taken significant steps forward to make gambling fairer and safer, and I know that I leave the organisation in a strong position to meet its future challenges.

“With a review of the Gambling Act underway, now feels the right time to step away and allow a new chief executive to lead the commission on the next stage in its journey.”

He spent nearly 15 years working at the Gambling Commission. He served as general counsel and chief executive from 2018 until his resignation this 2021.

LA Lakers start the NBA season in style

LA Lakers start the season in style

The Los Angeles Lakers have started the new NBA season in exceptional style, as their 11-3 record is the best in the league.

Headlined by the legendary LeBron James and Anthony Davis, they’ve been complemented brilliantly by the likes Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Dennis Schroder and veteran Marc Gasol, as they’re looking like the team to beat so far.

Producing the goods both offensively and defensively, they’re proving to be an irresistible force at present. By the numbers, they have the third best defensive record and the seventh best scoring record, which has given them a solid foundation to build from.

How well their new arrivals have adapted to life has been a positive too, for Gasol, Schroeder and excellent sixth man Montrezl Harrell are contributing brilliantly.

With star man, James, in beautiful form, this is illustrated by the fact he’s averaging 24.2 points per game, 7.5 assists pg and 8.3 rebounds pg.

Meanwhile, their other truly elite operator in Davis, has shone brightly on the defensive end as he’s supplemented his 22.5 points pg by leading the team in terms of blocks, steals and rebounds.

Coach Frank Vogel deserves credit for his work leading the team too, for he’s doing a fine job of getting the best out of his players and setting the conditions for them to thrive.

While it’s still early days in the season, the Lakers, who are priced at $3.50 to take home the NBA Championship, are justifiably the early favourites courtesy of their electric start to the new campaign.
