David Boyle has written an illuminating article in Lib Dem News about Black Hawk, Colorado where gambling has been legalised for more than a decade now, and advises people to visit their website as a taste of what might be to come for Manchester:
We might point out that if you visit Black Hawk, leave your children at home. Blackhawk is not a friendly place to people under the age of 21. If you want to take your children, or have no choice, we recommend Central City or Cripple Creek. Blackhawk can really party! But beware, they have a police force that strictly enforces Colorado DUI laws.
It sounds like a dreadful place and I fear he may have a point. But I have to admit, my main reason for writing this post was so I could write a post with that title, above.
At least I didn’t use “Black Hawk, Down”.
