LETTER: The Lottery: happiness, public involvement and His opinion

From Mr Charlie Harris

Sir: Regarding the Lottery, privatised utilities, financial distressed charities, etc: "If you would know what God thinks of money," once wrote Maurice Baring, "you only have to look at those to whom He gives it."

Perhaps He is just making His views particularly clear nowadays.

Yours faithfully,


London, NW3
