Ballabrigs I don't want to fall out over this. Perhaps I have not made myself very clear.I pay pc because of my past winnings. This year I hope to win about £1000 or there abouts from my gambling. I don't ever envisage myself winning at the rate I did in the past. I do consider myself a small time player now ( emphasis on now).For my sins I pay 60% . There is no realistic chance of that ever changing under current rules.Whereas people on here win sums far greater than me (you guess, they may win £10,000 or even 100,000). And they pay a lesser rate than myself. Perhaps 20% or 40% based on their past performance.Yes if I was to win £10,000 this year, then maybe I deserve to pay 60%. But I won'tWinning strategies don't necessarily last forever. But regardless, I am now a small time player winning small amounts, yet paying 60% each week. That is my grievance. Ok, you may have no sympathy for me, and say I got what I deserve, but it doesn't take away the fact that even if I win £20 per week from now on I will continue to pay 60%.. Yet others will win far more and pay a lower percentage.As they say in the city, past performance is not necessarily a guide to future profits.I can't really make my case any more than that. So I will leave it at that and say good luck.
Well said Hazel. Im on PC as well, and have to live with it. Im trying to run my own bussines very slowly right now and I dont believe in bf anymore. They have started being unfriendly, greedy, as they became public company on London Stock Exchange. They needed money from printing a shares and shareholders are the owners right know. The have a same thinking as Phone Operators Companies, Banks and any other companies who offer service to a massive group of audience. The are on short term vision(next 0,5 year-1 year) And they are not caring about future. They seems to not see what is going around(daq) and I wonder if some day the may end as Nokia did.
