One of the accusations made against the Government's plans to liberalise gambling is that Labour's socialist forefathers would be horrified. The closest Tessa Jowell can come to rebutting this is to suggest that those who don't like the idea of widespread gambling are driven by "snobbery".

Tessa Jowell was being disingenuous yesterday when she asserted that the Government's plans to liberalise the UK's gambling laws are about "new protections, not new casinos". The objective of the Government's Gambling Bill is quite clearly to allow "new casinos" to be built. Indeed, some American entertainment companies are already sizing up tracts of land in the UK on which to build their vast gambling complexes. The Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport was merely attempting to appease the increasingly vociferous opponents of this Bill.

The search to emulate all things American goes on. And, as any reader of Peanuts knows, there is nothing more American than summer camp - the bus out of town, the first nights in the dorm, the cards back home. So now New Labour is taking it up with enthusiasm as an idea to develop here. Tessa Jowell, the Culture Secretary, wants them as "an important learning process" with lots of "empowering activities". David Miliband, the minister for School Standards, says they would tackle the "problem of bored teenagers". We say: fine idea. But stop lecturing kids on what is good for them, and listen to what they want.
