And the lottery wants to increase the price from £1 to £2.

I don't recognise this country anymore :)

ETA - it's kinda sad, really, pretty much anywhere recognisable is dying, but again, outdated business models, this cutthroat world has no place for them.

What possible justification can that have? What, Camelot not rolling in enough filthy lucre?

I though Blockbuster went out of business years ago.

Also, Euromillions is already £2 a go :(

Also, ebay is longer giving cashback at tcb/quidco.

Minor thing, but Nectar points only from 1st feb.

Man, what a shitty start to 2013.

there was a guy interviewed on Newsnight last night that had the answer to the High Street issue. He was quite informative. Check it out on iPlayer

Well at least Staples are doing what they need to do to survive, they don't need the crazy number of industrial park megastores that they've got, we can only buy so much stationery.

All that will happen with a lottery price rise is that the Health Lottery will get a ton of new players.

I thought you had to be a bald, ageing geezer to play the health lottery?
