Tattersalls extended by a year but supermarkets circling

The newspapers today have the story about Tattersalls being given a one year extension of their lottery licence in Victoria. The stories focus on the profit Tattersalls will make without having to pay for the additional year in rights. Missing from the story is the joy being felt in newsagencies and other small businesses like mine today. The one year extension is another year of certainty of traffic. Tattersalls products generate huge traffic for my business and this extra year is most welcome.

Related: Two days ago there was a story about supermarkets possible getting scratch tickets. Yeah, supermarkets don’t have enough to sell and need scratch tickets. Not! Scratch tickets should not be sold in supermarkets. Any government approving this is a government which has no interest in small businesses and their employees.
