I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds some of these Lottery prizes quite obscene.I can understand that to win £1 million is probably everyone's dream but surely anything over and above that is completely OTT. A million quid wisely invested would see most lottery ticket winners set up for life.We ought to be thinking of how the excess £'s could perhaps go to more rewarding causes - there is enough of them including the NHS.What I always find amusing is that the winners of these vast sums always say " It won't change my life ". Who are they kidding ? Your life is changed the instant that dosh hits your bank account. Rant over............perhaps I should have put this on the Curmudgeon Thread
If everybody in the country paid £10 for each GP or outpatient visit, then a) they might actually turn up for it and b) it might cut down on the number of unnecessary visits (and I'm specifically not getting at you @Pansyface).

@Hostafan1 .... a friend on the foodie forum has a dog with newly diagnosed bile duct/gall bladder problems. She has just collected the first batch of medication ... She posted "I was quite amused when reading the patient information leaflet that came with the medication to see that it was actually for humans and used for treating gallstones. Thank goodness for insurance, this episode is a little shy of £1000 and still not fully resolved."Thank goodness for the NHS
