"Relentless" Means Oppressively Constant

While updating the information on PokieWatch.org the web page for the Chelsea Heights Hotel came up. This is a venue with a lot of external advertising targeting families with children and associated with Woolworths/Mathieson. There you'll find this extraordinary advertisement for a family Meal Deal:

Have a look at the food they are eating. Looks like all fried junk.

Here's the kids menu taken from the Chelsea Heights web site. Given the last line of the menu, it is open to suggest that food listed is, at the very least, not ideal health food without the selection of the healthy option.
Kids Menu $8.00
For kids 12 years and under (Includes a soft drink)
Chicken Nuggets & Chips
Fish & Chips
Spaghetti Bolognaise or Napoli
Mini Roast of the Day with Vegetables
Mini Ham & Pineapple Pizza & Chips
Sausages & Chips
Chicken Satay served with rice
Calamari & Chips
For a healthy option Vegetables or Salad are available as an alternative with each kid’s meal (excluding pasta)

Now check out the cute little girl looking lovingly at her father and notice the logo placed on his T-Shirt. Of all the logos to place there, its a Tatts Pokies logo. It's as if he is wearing a Tatts Pokie T-Shirt!

Pokie gambling is not an adult habit we want our children to look up to.
