A simple solution to our being taxed to help the NHS. The Lottery money on Wednesdays should be given over entirely to help run the hospitals.

No one would lose out. Other countries do it - why don't we? If there was a vote on this issue, the Government would be surprised that 90 per cent of people would be for it. It is very odd this has never been suggested. Come on, everyone, let's campaign for it.
