Imagine for a moment that you won tonight's lottery and found yourself with more money than you'd ever dreamed you might have to spend. Probably sixty times more than most might have wished as a kid, would one day be theirs. Times change of course, and a million doesn't go as far as it did when I first started work on an annual salary of £572. Back then, winning a million quid would have meant I wouldn't have needed to work again for 1,748 years. If we think of a youngster starting work on a salary of say £20K who bought tonight's winning lottery ticket, he/she might be thinking "That's it, I ain't got to work for another 3,000 years" In the context of the chancellor's budget speeches, sixty million quid seems a pathetically small amount and if you read what it says in the papers, you're only looking at fifteen years of bankers' bonuses, but as I've shown, it's a fabulous amount of money for ordinary people to think about. The trouble is, what do you do with it? You can invest it of course, with the intention it will earn you even more money that you don't know what to do with. You can use it to see your family all right if you have one. You can use it to buy yourself a nice house with security modeled on Fort Knox, because you'll probably need it if the word gets out you've got a few bob in the bank. Or you might think about setting aside enough to keep you in comfort for the rest of your days and spend the remainder of things you would like to see done to improve the world around you. What might such things be? A donation to a political party? A refuge for the homeless? The building of a decent school that would be run along the lines they were when you grew up?
