Four Corners on ABC – a senior Liberal Party minister speaks out for the first time about the orchestrated campaign to remove him by the powerful Australian gambling lobby.

Comparing ClubsNSW to the United States gun lobby, the NRA, the minister is calling for an investigation into the sector’s influence over government.

At a time when legislation around gambling reform is hotly contested, reporter Sean Nicholls and the team trace the history of the political power and influence of ClubsNSW, and the extraordinary deals signed with successive coalition governments guaranteeing favourable treatment.

Insiders tell Four Corners of the fears they have of speaking out against the powerful gambling lobby group with incredible political reach and even deeper pockets.

Four Corners: High Stakes, reported by Sean Nicholls goes to air on the 13th of March at 8.30pm on ABC TV and ABC iview.
