2 Fountainbridge casinos? - no thanks

Very disappointing story in the local paper this morning ... seems the Licensing Board has agreed to give the 'amber-light' to a potential "second-casino" for the Fountainbridge area ...

... I have to say, I'm entirely unconvinced and the policy framework for all of this seems to be in a bit of a mess.

Two casinos, so close to each other, frankly seems wrong to me ... but worse than that, Stanley Casinos had to close one casino down in Edinburgh to get the first Fountainbridge licence, yet now we're being told its fine for Grosvenor to go ahead and have the second Fountainbridge licence as there is unmet demand??
