Manchester United given £30k lottery money.

#1
When I heard this news I was nearly sick. The second richest club in the world is taking money from starving children, community projects and a plethera of other charities. Since when has Manchester United been a charity?

Found this on the BBC website have your say:

"There is something fundementally wrong for Man. Utd. to even be considered for funding when a mountain rescue team is refused because they did not rescue enough ethnic minorities."

What a total mockery.

Funny one on ITV news the other day, when they were talking about that fairer lottery, about how the battle of britain memorial fund was denied money from the lottery because they classed it not an integral part of our heritage, but £20K went to teaching prisoners how to play the xylophone.

This Man Utd controversy pales a bit alongside the £13.25m the Churchill family received when one of the first 'good causes' grants was made, mostly in lottery money for the sale of his papers to the nation. And this after the family had already made £6m through publishing deals. Still, his grandson got the opportunity to buy a house in Belgravia for £1.5m, so he didn't end up homeless. I stand to be corrected as usual - did they give any or all of it back at some point?

So the Churchills should have allowed the papers to go to the US?

Mais non.

Combat Stress doesn't qualify nor does St Dunstans but football clubs, queers, tarts, junkies and many many various bogus asylum seeker groups do, f*ck the lottery.

Well that sounds about right King Nothing. When it comes to giving money to things like The Battle Of Britain memorial fund , money to widows to go and see their husbands graves over seas , or even just to keep our old folk warm in the winter Feck no why do that when we can spend money on pi$h that has absolutely no direct beneficial effect on any communities in our 4 great nations that make up the UK.

Why do that when we can spend money on this shoite

Lets sort out ourselves first, then worry about the rest of the world who couldn’t really give a shit about us if the tables were turned … £72 million ffs

The International Programme is the Big Lottery Fund’s way of helping disadvantaged communities overseas.

This £72 million programme will support work that tackles the causes of poverty and deprivation
How about looking after disadvantaged communities in the UK, the third world gets billions and billions of dollars in AID already. It's about time the parasitic third world started looking after it's own. F*ck em.

I can remember reading, About injured soldiers having to wait for treatment .
they were advised to pay private .

The money (£30,000) which as been approved for Man utd, I think is totally unaceptable and should be used for people who really need help.

It is the public who play the lottery each week, And us the public should have some say in where we want the money to be distributed .

Taz my heart bleeds purple piss for you! lol
Count yourself lucky will yer cos the Hammers ended up selling all our good players to Chelski/Spurs etc after we went down.
Lampard,Cole,DiCanio,Kanoute,Defoe,David James (yeah ok I know I'm stretching it a bit there!)....not a bad side I reckon!!
Mind you it wasn't all bad as we did get Repka and Scaloni lol

The money will fund yoga lessons and lunchtime walking sessions

Wouldn't it just be cheaper to move the canteen, the pub, the massage parlour and the casino?

Cheaper as Man U can fcuking pay for it and all of it.

If ICI, for example, had requested the money for the same reasons, would they have received any cash? Doubt it eh!

Maybe out Lords and Masters should apply for funding so that we can get some decent kit to go to war with...
