Shamed into action by my cutting remarks about the Monte Carlo casino, ITV has taken its ghastly ITV Play off the air. Of course, in the moral calculus of hell, the casino is superior to the TV channel. It exists, as does most of Monaco, solely to take money off the rich. ITV Play with its cretinous games aspires only to steal from the poor. I am tempted to add 'Do Not Gamble' to our blossoming self-help list. Or perhaps, 'Do not labour under the delusion that you have some special relationship with the workings of chance.'
