A gamble too far for Hain

The Secretary of State for Wales and Leader of the House of Commons, Peter Hain, says that "Casinos coming to Wales would provide an opportunity for families to go out and eat, have some entertainment and still be able to indulge in some leisure gambling in an adult fashion."

I have been puzzling over this statement for most of the day. Certainly, people phoning into Radio Wales this lunchtime thought he had lost his bearings. Most seemed to think that a licensed casino was not the sort of place one would want to take the kids.

Perhaps somebody could enlighten me as to what exactly Mr. Hain has in mind.
