Re: Extinction Rebellion

Your choice of cars betrays you. Who else - even if they had the money - would want a "Lambo/Aston Martin/McClaren/Range Rover,Bentley (don't know what a VW T6 is)..." other than a car fanatic - ergo, "petrolhead"? Sorry, but the cap fits. I have one - repeat one - car for those...

Re: Booze - minimum price?

In Scotland, there is a 50p per unit minimum price for alcoholic drinks. Here in Bonny England, we have no such law. Been buying Old Speckled Hen in cans from Tesco at £20 for two boxes of ten ie one 500ml can for a quid. 2.5UK units per can at 5% abv ......... it says on the cans ........ just loo...

Re: What Would You Do With £170M

I wouldn't be offered 170M. I don't do the lotteries. A couple of hundred grand would sort us out nicely, but as I'm not - and never have been - a gambler, I could never win it. I'm not and have never been a gambler.Never bet on horses/dogs/football...anything.I've never put money in a fruit-machin...

Obscene.

I take it then if you were offered £170m you'd turn it down?
What would you see as an "unearned amount" to be less obscene?
It's a LOTTERY.Anything won is "unearned" :roll:

Re: What Would You Do With £170M

I don't know why there is so much of a prize money winnings. Instead of one person getting 170M, why not have 170 people get a million each? ........... or 1,700 people getting 100grand each? Not looked at a Lottery ticket for years, but if my memory serves me correctly, if you matched three number...

Re: What Would You Do With £170M

Don't want to be a party pooper but who *needs* that much money? It's an obscene amount. They should spread the wealth. More lower-value prizes, greater odds of winning [something life-changing] for everyone. It doesn't take £170 million to change someone's life. Is sooner have £170m than £17m :win...

There were a couple of them on Breakfast TV this morning.I didn't see it but from the Social media frenzy it appears one has to fly everywhere for her job and the other drives a Diesel car.
