The sad fact is that in my local shop, the people that seem to buy these are the ones with the least money, is si desperation?

 

I see little old dears, very old dears, spendind 10 or 20 quid on lottery and scratch cards, and young mothers too. Sad really.

 

Don't touch them myself. Should ban them.

The lottery is nothing short of a tax on stupidity.

 

The problem with those less fortunate is that even if they win big, it's gone in no time because they spend spend spend.

 

I said this next comment to a number of friends, from different economic backgrounds and they agree.

They should be made to stick to the Saturday and midweek lottery only, get rid of all other games.
