Alastair Darling champions Canadian teachers

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/10649986/Independent-Scottish-charities-face-missing-out-on-National-Lottery-millions.html

Of all the bloody stupid bluster we’ve seen over the last few days, this may rank as the bloody stupidest! Beyond doubt independence will be followed in short order by a new Scottish National Lottery; I predict that this will run on a not for profit basis, unlike Lotto, where 10p of every £2 stake (and that’s a lot of pennies) goes to the operator Camelot, which is owned, bizarrely, by the Ontario Teachers Pension Fund.

Given that Scots are inveterate punters, it is entirely possible that Scottish charities will gain in net lottery disbursements.
