In my view these are the only groups deserving of National Lottery cash. All the other so-called good causes should be properly resourced from national taxation. The National Lottery Charities Board is a substitute for a well-regulated and fair taxation system, and in effect takes money from those people least able to afford it, to subsidise those areas of public life which are rightly the province of public funding.
