Money - what would you do? Hypothetically.

After watching Syndicate last night (group of workmates won £18 million on the lottery), we were discussing how we would apportion some of the winnings to the family. So, say you (on your own or with one partner, no syndicate) won - for the sake of argument - £20 million, how would you share it with your family?

On one hand, one daughter/son in law/granddaughter and on the other, one daughter/four grandchildren and three partners/four great grandchildren.

I don't mean giving money to charity, cats homes or whatever - just your immediate family.

As I said, totally hypothetical, unfortunately!

Sorry! That's what comes of going backwards and forwards over several days. I must have missed your post and nobody seemed to realise the implications. Still it is only a hypothetical win.

It's nice to dream (and not worry about the taxman :))

All very well saying what you would do if you won a lottery jackpot but, most people really don't know how they would actually react to a big win and the pressures it would bring.

What would I do? Leave this country immediately and take my severly adult disabled daughter with me.

My daughter at present attends a day centre, a little under 30 hours per week. Social Services now inform me that we have contribute what amounts to approx 2/3 of her income support to help pay for her day care.
