Buuuuuuuurn, if the winner doesn't collect. Seriously, could you imagine checking your lottery tickets tomorrow? Just hurts to think of it

The money goes to charity otherwise, and the person could well know they won but decided they don't want that in their life.

It's not gonna get claimed. It's from september last year, the ticket will be long gone.

Oh dear God - Well...isn't that great. Can you imagine saying, "I just lost £7M...I didn't know I had...last year"

Ouch - it hurts so much but yes, at least it goes to charity.

In law, that's a charitable trust. So, yes, most likely

I just don't think it's a particularly worthy cause.
#11
i don't think anyone is going to claim it, whoever had the ticket probably threw it away or lost it long ago not knowing it was a winning ticket. now they can do nothing about it

...although in a turn of events a bum could find the discarded ticket and claim the money, that would be a nice ending

Yeah, a Charitable trust is a trust for any abstract purpose providing it dimishes poverty (in a broad sense) in some way - now that's not saying Stratford is a shit area, but I'd be lying if that I didn't mean that . But really, East London needs to be bloody cleaned and the Olympics is doing just that.

Only poor people clean things, so this will generate work.

"Poverty" means a broad sense. In Trust law, this means regenerating the area for people to live in better conditions. If you've been to the east end of London, you'll see it's not the friendliest of all places to live in - providing the Olympics means employment, better sense of living because it's cleaner etc (it will be spotlessly clean as the authorities will be keep to impress). Not only that, but it generates an interest in Olympic sports and so it's actually educational. Educational and Resarch trusts for the advancement of sport-related topics is considered charitable.

It's still a far-fetched assumption that cleaning the streets will diminish poverty, even if it's mostly underclass people that will clean. It's hardly a longterm solution either.

maybe is people see clean stuff then it makes them happy

clean = new drug


How is getting people addicted charity?

Now that's even more far-fetched.

Bah, you brits and your deceptiveness!

And there was me thinking poverty meant kids with rickets because they can only afford to eat one day in three.
In fact it turns out that poverty means not havign a TV in every room of your house.
