There is a whole list of things and people you can’t beat, so it might be best to be cautious around them. They include the bookies (and anyone else trying to take money off you for gambling - casino owners, card sharps, race courses, online gambling websites etc.), the tax authorities, speed cameras, the government, your mother, planning authorities, the police, your kids and death.



Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code, was sued by the authors of another book, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, as they believed he had plagiarized their work. They lost. They lost big time. They lost somewhere, in the region of £1.75 million including costs.
They probably believed quite sincerely in the merits of their case, but did anybody tell them they were unlikely to win? It’d be fascinating to know whether anybody advised them not to proceed as they would probably lose... 

“Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code, was sued by the authors of another book, Holy Blood, Holy Grail, as they believed he had plagiarized their work. They lost. They lost big time”.

The reason to be very cautious in your dealings with bookies, barristers, accountants and such like is that they have knowledge you don’t. They are holders of secrets that can enable them (if they so choose) to make money out of you purely because of your ignorance. And don’t go getting all moralistic on me and trying to change the system. These are facts of life. Live with them. Work them.
You won’t get rid of them. You can’t beat the bookies - or the odds - so don’t go trying or attempting to get rid of them on the grounds that they are making money out of the poor, innocent and gullible public. Trouble is, the poor, innocent, gullible publics walk in there with their wallets open crying, ‘Help yourself.’ And then complain they are broke, no one gives them a chance, life isn’t fair, no one likes me, it’s not my fault, there ought to be a law against it, etc. Remember that there are sharks out there. So don’t bleed.
