National Lottery

What do you think about Branson being turned down for the National Lottery? I thought the government had said they wanted it to be run on a not-for-profit basis. Was Branson the right person for the job?

    Personally, I think Branson is the coolest entrepeneur around. He's got a great personality, he usually does a pretty good job with his companies and his business practice is very, very sound.

    However, he should not run the lottery if they want it done on a non-profit basis. Branson is a money-maker, and the idea of giving away money to good causes, which he has done in the past, wont strike his fancy.

    I dunno...the lottery needs somone like Branson, but completely different.

    I'm ranting again.

    Maybe Branson wanted the Lottery to help him more with his "Mr Nice Guy" image. All money going to charities and winnings.

    Personally I think Branson is sly and there is something about him which I can't quite put my finger on. He just seems too nice to be true! He seems false!

    Actually, most of what I wrote was bullshit newa - I read the news article and it said that Branson was gonna give more the programs than Camelot. Yeah, he's sly, but he's cool
