it could be you

Mr W.J. JOHNSTON: […] People will never get rich playing these games because the odds are completely stacked against them. However, because the first prize is so large, everybody has the lotto dream and we all get involved. I, personally, have never bought a lottery ticket, but my wife buys them regularly, so one day maybe my children will get a postcard from Bermuda, but it will be my wife’s money, not mine, that pays for it.

Mr C.J. Barnett: Perhaps she will win and you will take off!

Mr W.J. JOHNSTON: Yes, perhaps I will, Premier. But there is only a one in 8.145 million chance of it happening, so it is probably not worth the Premier holding a breath until that day!

Mr C.J. Barnett: I suddenly feel sorry for your wife; she has some slim chance!

Mr W.J. JOHNSTON: Do not go down that track, Premier. I mean, the Premier is the one who complains about people bringing family matters into this place.

Mr C.J. Barnett: Oh, really!

Mr W.J. JOHNSTON: Yes; do not do it.

Mr C.J. Barnett: Precious!

Mr W.J. JOHNSTON: There is a comeback that I could use, Premier, but I am not going to.

Mr C.J. Barnett: Go for it.

Mr W.J. JOHNSTON: Anyway, I want to go through this question of the unsold shares.
