Re: Postcode lottery
National lottery for me have made some very dubious grants. Huge amounts for the elite such as Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. The average person in the street who bought the tickets couldn't afford to visit such places. The regional distribution of funds is very London weighted, there is a lot of areas of the country get a fraction of what the capital gets. The amount of people playing has dropped hugely so what do they do, they put the price of the tickets up. I think it will eventually die a death unless they completely revamp it and increase the chances of winning.
