Today’s winners report that they are going to “celebrate with a pizza”
I’m just away for a KFC party bucket myself.
I see that Euromillions winners Colin and Chris Weir have donated £1,000,000 to the SNP for use in the forthcoming independence referendum. This comes a month after poet Edwin Morgan left a similar amount in his will to the party.
And of course there was the half million donated by
Christian fundamentalist fruitcake respected businessman and moral campaigner, Brian Soutar.
The Nats are in the money and they are clearly riding the crest of the Zeitgeist.
I’m just conscious that donations and investments usually come with terms and conditions….

Son quit job after Dad's lotto lies
The furious son of a hoaxer who convinced a town he'd won the £35.4million Euro lottery has spoken of his anger.
Jordan Frater quit his job after his father Fergus, 46, promised him a £5million share of the jackpot.
Roofer Jordan told The Sun: "I could kill him. I'm absolutely gutted."
"When dad told me he'd won the lottery, I phoned my boss to tell him I was leaving. I've had to get back on the phone and beg for my job back.
"I don't know why dad would have done this to us. We're in shock. We can't get hold of him."
Jobless Frater, who had gone missing last night, also pledged to give his sister Lorraine, 41, £1 million after bragging he had the record-breaking ticket.
Jordan said he and his pregnant girlfriend Lucy Scrivens, 25, started making plans to move to Australia with their young daughter as soon as Frater bragged that he had won the huge jackpot.
He said: "One minute I was a multi-millionaire, the next I was back to having nothing."
Scottish-born Frater vanished from his flat in Littlehampton, West Sussex, after telling his family he was off to claim the money.
Earlier he posed for pictures with a EuroMillions ticket as he downed pints during a pub crawl. His local paper even splashed news of his windfall on its front page.
