It seems this is all the poor plebs deserve in corporate Britain. Feed 'em crap and bleed 'em of every last penny.

Do politicians care at all? It seems we are becoming less civilised, less caring, and more ruthless as a nation. Thatcher's dog eat dog ethos is flourishing.

I've never played the lottery. I have eaten horse - knowingly, when I was in France and was offered it. It tasted good - richer than beef, but I wouldn't make a habit of it. I've never bought a Tesco burger, but I have intentionally eaten a variety of weird stuff lol.

Will Self, writing in today's Sunday Times, refers to the National Lottery as "The Chav Tax".

“Horse burgers”

Horse steaks and horse burgers are good eats. I once regularly purchased and consumed horse. Can’t beat horse filet mignon (medium rare, bacon wrapped) with a stick!

I think sickchip you have put your finger on the problem, but I did not except anything else from the Tories as you have said its the Thatcher era brought back with a vengeance.

To be fair, some progress appears to have been made. At least we now have a 'man eats horse' approach to feeding the British public... Shocked

I became a PROUD Labour party member on the 11th of May 2010, SIX days after the Tories got not a majority but never the less into power because I knew what was coming a continuation of the Thatcher/Major gov't, after voting Labour all my life would like to let you know and the rest of this forum I was Elected Vice Chair of my CLP so yes I do know about the Labour party and everything it stands for which is FAIRNESS for ALL, and not like the Tories who protect the Elite or as you would know it the top 10% that are as shower of shysters and defraud the H.M.R.C of Billions, they want to make there money here but do not want to pay there correct amount of tax to the country where they make money.

I found two beef burgers in the freezer yesterday so I had a beef burger sandwich i think there were horse meat in them. I woke up this morning with a bit in my mouth.

The government gave Camelot permission to raise the price, a pound a ticket the Governments cut is about 700 million a year, raising it to two pounds will over double it. Since the backlash, the Government says they are having nothing to do with it. They said also If they lose out by them putting up the price they will lose the franchise. With the people of this country struggling to make ends meet, this raise smacks of pure greed, they are as bad as the bankers.
It should have gone to Branson the last time the franchise was up for grabs, it smacks of corruption to me, Branson wouldn't be so greedy.

Top and bottom of it is - they know beggars can't be choosers........don't they.

You'll eat what you're given and your aspirations and ambitions have become a punt on a lottery ticket.

But your talking like it was the 12th of NEVER, and if it was up to you and your fcuking gov't we would be eating SHYTE and horse burgers would be better. Gordon Brown did abolish the 10p tax I never heard you asking why ? The City B(W)ankers and hedge fund managers you know the people I'm talking about Tory Donors the reason G.Brown had to abolish the 10p tax rate so that he could pay the interest on the money he HAD to Borrow to bail the Backstud City bankers out.

You open your mouth and your butt does the talking that is why the forum is full of ASS GRAVY.

I entirely agree with what you have said jackthelad, this might explain it though, the more they have the more the wealthy want greedy backstuds, but the Tories will pay the price come May 2015 and thereafter be known as "The One Term Firm" if they thought that 13 years was a long time let me enlighten them people memories will be a lot longer than 13 years.

To the unemployed citizen, the possibility of a Lottery Win may be the only chink of light in the darkness, and whilst it's probably true to describe it as a Tax on the Poor, what else can give you something to actually look forward to? (Apart from Divine Intervention to stop the Tories in their tracks.)

Probably makes more sense than relying on the Tories for help when you need it:

Typical Tory Attitude I never heard you say lets stop the pay day loan sharks from charging so EXORBITANT Interest rates ?? the reson being tory donors Lord Beecroft has his finger in that pie, the reason that Camelot is putting tickets up to £2.00 because they know the Tories will not stop them from making more money, and before you start just who gave the lottery franchise to Camelot it was your dull man John Major.

Ok red, lets stop the loan sharks as well. Remember when Major started the lottery, all the profits went to charities, think back mate, it was Blair that changed the rules so that the government had input has to who the money went to.

Not perhaps un-connected with an earlier Camelot decision to give Churchill's grandson MP a large sum of Lottery money in order to "buy" his grandfather's memoirs.

What about the man at the top of Camelot getting paid £1 Million a year does that money go to godd causes does it fcuk it goes into his (more than likely) off shore account, so is that how Osbourn can boast that he has paid of 25% of the deficit :pirat: :pirat:
