South Dorset MP Wants Lottery Funded Royal Yacht Costing £120 Million

‘Every year, we distribute millions of pounds of the National Lottery’s good cause money to community groups and charitable projects around the UK’ is the narrative at the top of the National Lottery web page.

And then 50 Tories come along and:

‘These are the 50 Tory MPs that want a lottery-funded Royal Yacht, costing £120 million. Cancer sufferers are denied £30 a week, rough sleepers are dying on our streets at an average age of just 47 and 127,600 children need somewhere they can call their home. Have a think on this.’ (Rachael Swindon)

Yet again words almost fail.
