Lotto blues

Monday 2 March 2015 | Published in Letters to the Editor


Dear Editor, Nothing irks me more than the monotonous and oft-repeated ad on TV about the TattsLotto.

It is an affront to me and I am sure to many Christians that this ad has been thrown into our face ad nauseam for years.

Lottery is based on appealing to the most vulnerable on the ridiculous promise of great riches and holidays galore and the like. The Government should stop this nonsense and if there is a hue and cry over it, then it should only be run by Government and all income to go to Government Social Welfare to help the very people Lotto will devour.

Here Government has given some people the right to steal money from our own poor even though much of the income is taxed.

It should never have been allowed in our little country.
