Quite annoyed that for 5 years I worked in Camden (and even drunk in that crappy Wetherspoons Starlizard sits atop) without knowing it existed - could have popped my CV under the door.

Is odd that Playtech are just around the corner too. A real gambling powerhouse that tiny bit of Camden.

I had not previously known that Tony was involved in dear old Tribeca, either.

Lots of pies with his fingers in them, it seems.

No me either. Nor St Enodoc. Guess he must have been a silent early stage investor in both as he certainly was never involved publicly in either.

It was the bit where they said you needed £3bn of capital to make £100m, therefore £100m was unlikely, where they lost me.  Given their likely volumes, they are going to recycle the money they have several times a year.  I had a bit if déjà vu, has a similar article been posted before?  Interesting regardless, thanks for posting.

I have no idea how they get so much on.  The wage and cost bill must be several million, and to cover that must mean they get huge sums on every year. 

Ed Hawkins wrote something on them both a while back http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2200795-mugs-and-millionaires-inside-the-murky-world-of-professional-football-gambling

Wage bill was £7.8m in 2014. You can just look up the accounts on Companies House. Not sure why this writer didn't. Maybe he did. You can see all the companies he's involved with here https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/officers/Q_ADm7H9pnKODGCzK1SOUE7PJbI/appointments

Yes, the article sort of missed the point there. It's like the punter who goes into Ladbrokes on a Saturday, or an Online slots site, his initial £10 can go back & forth countless times & become x £hundreds of turnover.

Very interesting article, nonetheless.

Wonder of there are spies in the two camps (Bloom/Benham) who tell the other what is going off?

I never realised Bloom & Benham did not get along.

Fair play to them both, if they can earn so much.  

I'm still curious how, & with whom, a 7 figure bet can be placed. I know it's all Far East Stuff, Asian Handicaps & the like, but WHO exactly takes these bets?

There is a large private betting market in Asia. There are a few large bet brokerage firms who deal in this sort of stuff. Samvo is probably the best known. I'm quite sure a few people on Blonde know more about this than me.

If I'm gonna have to work until 60+ I'll take the easier option thanks......

The idea of people who aren't very wealthy retiring before 60 is already fairly ridiculous, it will be utterly absurd in 20 years time. Concept of retirement is completely out of line with its initial meaning.

I must admit it's very hard to see them as anything other than evil though

Yeah that's a fair point, and one that's worth discussing further.

I think another way of looking at it is he is saying there are always two sides to any story, always shades of grey and it's rarely the case that one side is evil and one side is good. Our experience in the middle east where the good guys become bad guys become good guys etc surely teaches us there is at least SOME merit in that.

"Many people watching Jeremy Corbyn’s interview on Marr last Sunday will have been shocked by his remarks about the need to begin a ‘dialogue’ with the leadership of the Islamic State. ‘I think there has to be some understanding of where their strong points are,’ he said.

Afterwards, when these comments were widely reported, Corbyn’s supporters said they’d been taken out of context — the standard defence whenever he is criticised for saying something positive about Islamist terrorists, such as describing Hamas and Hezbollah as his ‘friends’ or the death of bin Laden as a ‘tragedy’. But there are only so many times this excuse can be used to explain these apparently supportive remarks. It’s beginning to look as though the Labour leader really does sympathise with terrorists."

Despite my better judgement I did actually read it. What a load of inane nonsense. Just so many factual holes and leaps of logic that are just absurd.

Decry ISIS for it's quite abhorrent actions not because a totally separate Islamic/Islamist group (who incidentally some people cheered on in the Arab spring) once had rather tenuous links to the Nazi party. I mean, come on! It's this kind of unsophisticated knee-jerk polemic that is making intelligent discourse so difficult in modern politics.

I repeat, I'm not a supporter of Corbyn and I find his tone regarding appeasement troubling at times, but this is just bollocks.

Stopped reading as soon as I saw it was written by professional troll and total penis Toby Young. The thinking man's Katie Hopkins.

Hope he/she continues to post though. More voices in this tread would be a good thing. Although a few more rational right wingers might be nice Smiley
