    "One lucky person is sitting on a lottery ticket worth £35.4m after
    winning the EuroMillions draw.

    Camelot, which operates the British arm of the European lottery, said
    it would be the biggest single payout in the UK's lottery history.

    But the holder of the ticket, which was bought somewhere in the UK,
    has not come forward since Friday night's draw.

    Camelot said the winner, who has 180 days to collect their prize, may
    not even be aware of their good fortune. "

    It's a start but you couldn't live on it!

    ****! Maybe I shouldn't have been so hasty with the german bint who
    called me at home (in France) last week to tell me I'd won some
    lottery I'd never heard of...

    What's the first thing you'd do if you just had £35.4m cleared into
    your account?

    Talk to my accountant about where to put it. Oh, and then buy
    something like this
    and move our official Swiss residency there.

    The second thing being, presumably, to learn how to post to usenet in
    an intelligible manner?

    After you've been indulging in what Amsterdam has to offer, this hardly
    seems likely.

    I'd give a chunk of it to the people who mean most to me, if I thought
    they deserved it - close friends etc. Exceptions would be people like
    my elder sister, who is a lovely person but wealthy in her own right.
    She doesn't need it, so why give her more. I suppose even my eldest
    daughter comes into this category, but I'd have to chuck her a big
    bundle of used 20s just cos she's my kid.

    I'm really struggling to think of something I'd like to do that I
    couldn't already do if I wanted. You're pre-supposing that a huge
    wodge of cash would make a huge difference to anyone - I'm really not
    sure it would, at least not for a while.
    But if you really wanted to do all that, you could anyway.

    Mungo "Two Sheds" Toadfoot () gurgled happily,
    sounding much like they were saying :
    But lottery winnings are income-tax free... So the only tax would be on
    what you do with it - either income tax or CGT on any investments you make.

    They have taxes over there too, and the last time I looked (5-6 years
    back to be honest) they weren't *that* much lower than in the UK.

    Well, inheritance tax makes a fair dent in things.

    Hmmm, whilst I can definitely see the appeal of a Spitfire.... is it
    possible to buy a Hawk to keep you going until the Harriers are taken
    out of service?

    Certainly in Basel Stadt Kanton they're not. Some of the smaller ones,
    notably Obwalden where we're thinking of buying a house in a ski
    resort (Engelberg) are significantly lower.

    But moving here with a big chunk of cash is _not_ a good idea, as tax
    is payable not only on income, as in the UK, but also on any 'wealth'
    that you own. So they'd soon start chipping away at that 34.5m.
