Privatise the TAB

Does anyone know any good reason why the TAB should enjoy a coercive monopoly? Any reason at all why the government should own it? Any good reason local bookies shouldn't be legalised? I can't think of any.

And neither can our friend at Write Ups.
Contrast this absurd situation with the UK: they have Ladbrokes, Bet365, Willhill, Cantor Index. The UK punter can bet on so much more than his Kiwi counterpart.
Why can't we have this choice? Answer: Because Nanny says you can't. That's why.
