Ever since the death of his father in 2005, James Packer has single-handedly controlled Australia’s biggest gambling empire. Over that time, he’s attended 10 Crown AGMs, which usually alternate between Perth and Melbourne.

At 10am in Melbourne tomorrow, the most widely anticipated Crown Resorts AGM will kick off. Packer won’t be chairing the meeting, but will be open to questions when shareholders deliberate on his re-election to the board.

    No state or federal govt ever going to mess with the pokies. Can’t afford to.

    WA got the right idea. Don’t have them.

    Pokies have spread like cancer ov er the last 25 years.

    Witness the rise of massive clubs over this time. If you are stupid enough to throw your money away into those things, well why should anyone protect you from that.

    Might as well tear up $50 notes and throw them into the wind.

    No fucks given.
