Hutton Think Tank have
been asked to prepare a bid to site locally the Super Hyper Casiino only one of which is allowed to be built in the UK as the result of recent gambling legislation. The bid will be concerted with the Scottish Borders Tourist Authority. ' Its a safe Bet in the Scottish Borders
'-a much more visionary title than the present rather negative 'Scotland's Favourite Short Break Destination. Ht2 can point out that this area is ideal. No crime, plenty of room, cheap labour, excellent communications especially North and South. Various farmers and landowners are being approached to provide the land for a monstrous edifice and the response is said to be enthusiastic-Casino versus Low Cost Housing-no contest. Local schools are being involved in the marketing exercise and there is a competition at Primary level for the best slogan. Entries include 'Lose Your Shirt at Sunny Sunwick' '' Its a Bettor place all round' 'Come here and Double your return' Entries from the general public are invited direct to Ht2 at its usual dead letter box. The prize is one weeks free membership of the 'Hutton and Paxton Money Farm' with £5 spending money. Roll up Roll up.You never know your luck.
