Rishi Sunak’s Tory lottery launch has some ‘prizes,’ a way to raise money for the party, and for the winners to get close to the people who run this nation (badly).
The party needs money, like they all do, and the Tories can’t rely on those big chqs from Russia anymore.
Maybe Russian agents just buy 3 million tickets as a way to get around it?
Funnily enough when it looks like a party is likely to lose the next election, money dries up.
For those who don’t know what a meat raffle is.
Usually people put in a quid for a ticket, the money will be given to charity, and the winner gets a f*ck load of meat, from a local butcher.
It is thought meat raffles began as a response to food rationing during World War II.
Families would donate whatever meats they had to the auction allowing the winner to take home enough meat to feed their family.
So what does the Tory lottery winner get?
Well, the first prize is, wait for it….£10,000 and a 10-minute phone call with prime minister Rishi Sunak.
Take the £10k and sack off the phone call?
Second place prize is a £5,000 Jet2 holiday voucher, one assumes Sunak has never been on one of these ‘common’ flights.
Third prize is £1,000 and a cricket bat signed by Rishi Sunak.
Spend the grand and wash the signature of the bat?
