NOW that the excitement of a local couple winning a vast lottery jackpot has died down:
1. Do others share my concern that the national lottery encourages attitudes of ‘ Get rich quick’ and ‘Something for (virtually) nothing’, neither of which belong in a properly civilised society?
2. Do others share my concern that a £101 million lottery jackpot should be won by two people just a few days before it was reported that as a nation we raised the smaller sum of £72 million to help bring relief to millions of famine victims in east Africa?
