Yes, got mine this morning, thank heavens for the postal service, and the FT sallying forth in uncertain times. With fewer people going out, I wonder if Forteana reports will diminish?

I assume there'll be a rise in domestic cases.

It does look very good, I agree!

Is anyone that subscribes to FT going to uptake the unexpected free lottery tickets offer? Unusual thing to do...it's just for "loyal subscribers, so presumably that is all subscribers?

I don't gamble, so I just threw them out. Weird gift, is the Lottery experiencing a downturn in gamblers?

I don't gamble
I only gamble via the UK National Lottery, so the odd concept of being given free entries into that pointless endevour does deserve a bit of a checkover.

I'm partly-convinced that the Lottery (in all its reflavoured varieties) is a total waste of money. But because I used to line-manage someone who won £1M on the Lotto (back in the late 1990s I think), I still retain a tiny hope that it can work.

She bought a new trouser suit, a fast Audi convertible, and had a week's holiday in Brighton, then went back to work and never mentioned it again. She will be retired by now....as will her husband, who already owned a very-successful building company (a two Range Rovers / posh office / golf-two-days-a-week kind-of company).

Nothing in life is ever fair.....or it wouldn't be life <sigh>

There's no National Lottery branding on the 'gift', it's not from them. This is lottery entering service (why do punters need such a service?) called 'Yourlottoservice UK ltd' You pay a monthly subscription to their service and join a syndicate that plays the National Lottery or Euromillions on your behalf. Their website doesn't say what their commission rates are: I think you are told this once you subscribe.
Terms and conditions also state " If you only enter the Free Lines Offer and do not subscribe to join a Syndicate, the Order Confirmation confirms your participation in the Free Lines Offer" This means you can get your free entry without giving them your bank details, which is confirmed later in the terms and conditions. But you do have to give them address, phone number and email so the potential for follow up pestering is still there.

S D Tucker IS capable of thoughtful and intelligent work if he leaves off with the politics.

A really good issue, well done to everyone involved in its publication and delivery.

Got this message as well. As long as I have more than ten years of FT back issues to read, I don't mind if the current issue is delayed a bit...

May I ask - I've been searching for 391 but all the outlests that aren't actually closed don't have it. frustrating. Is there a way, for instance, of buying this one copy outright online (as opposed to taking out a full sub?)
