LETTER: It's just a gamble

From Dr Jonathan G. M. Wood

Sir: Papers report the shortcomings of our education system, but celebrate pounds 10m lottery-winning heroes. Forty years' hard work delivering energy to the nation for a lesser reward provokes envious derision. "Don't work, gamble" is the lesson for the Millennium.

Yours faithfully,

Jonathan G. M. Wood
