Remember when the National Lottery started it weas all about making money for good causes? Well, as we all known Gordon Brown's economic incompetence has led to massive hikes in borrowing, but not only that, he's totally plundered the National Lottery's money in order to fund his spedning blackholes.
Croydonian, having found the information in Hansard has helpfully created a pie chart to show just how much Gordon brown has taken from good causes to cover his own balance sheet issues.
Take a look at the light blue section of the pie. That is the amount of money in the Lottery funds that was used for "Health and Education" in 1997 compared with now.
I do love the way the Government likes to call charities and good causes the "third sector" and acts like it really cares about it whilst simultaneously screwing them over when slicing up the money from us proles who deseprately dream of the millionaire life.
