I am astounded by how inept this whole matter of granting a sports betting licence has been handled by both the issuing authority and the recipient.
From the speed at which the approval (or approval-in-principle or grant or bequest or conditional approval or whatever it will be called) was given to the bravado and in-your-face machismo displayed by the recipient, it has all the characteristics of a fiasco from the get-go.
What a joke.
So, what we have is this. Imagine it being sung by the relevant persons:
This one will never sell,
they'll never understand,
I don't even sing it well,
I try, but I just can't.
