Lottery is only glimmer of hope for poor

Have your say

Is there no end to the greed of Lotto Company “Camelot”, they added 50p onto the price of their Euro Lottery a few months ago, I take it the public must have carried on buying tickets, because now they have doubled the price of the Lotto tickets.

If people can remember when the tenders were put in to running the lottery, Richard Branston offered to run the Lottery and only take out his expenses.

Yet another dubious decision of our wonderful Government was to hand it over to a privatised company, ever since this decision Camelot have been bringing new lotteries out as if they are going out of fashion.

There are umpteen scratch card lotteries at varying prices, so why by doubling the price of tickets are they going to kill the poorer people’s only glimmer of hope of trying to improve their lives.
