Why On Earth Would You Go Public Like This?

Recommended Posts

To show off to everyone else?

Admittedly, the press would manage to track them down, one way or another...

They'll be hounded until the day they die now...

Yes, I can't understand why people go public in the media. I would want as few people as possible to know.

Had to laugh at his surname Trotter.....from London......Del Boy...we'll be millionaires Rodders :lol:

Why will they be hounded for ever?

If they employ someone to deal with their mail(a muscular young man with an incinerator should do), change their names and disappear off to somewhere private abroad, the press will forget pretty quickly.

Agreed though, I wouldn't go public.

Probably a bit hard to keep it quiet!

Gosh, if I got that amount of money, I would buy new strings for all my guitars! :blink:

Its a shame that you would have to change your identity for a bit of cash... People will track you down...and I bet they get hundreds of begging letters a week...

How far could you go with "oh, we got a healthy inheritance"...

And get Eric Clapton to come round in person to change them.

No! I'd rather have Johnny Marr, as I think he is a musician! ;)

That's another thing I find hard to comprehend. No matter how desperate I was, the last thing I would do is send a begging letter to someone.

I was convinced that I had won it this weekend - had a vibe that was clearly wrong.

I had spent most of it - given enough to friends to enable them to buy some treats, bought myself a house and then set up a charitable trust. I thought it would be cool to do good things with it until I met Jennifer Aniston in first class NY to LA.

Oh well.

I would not have gone public though. A world of grief now awaits him. I hope he avoids it and is happy.

I can't understand why they would choose to go public, maybe a lot of pressure is put on them.....or they are told it will go public whatever so you may as well go along with our good publicity, will look after you etc......l think people will soon forget, another multi millionaire will be along tomorrow..... ;)

Shindig! I have a White Falcon! It's the most expensive guitar I ever bought! And I won't do it again! :blink::blink:

And I didn't pay that much! It's not for the "shy"! Is it? :o:o

Is it falling apart? Binding rot?

I'd be scared to buy an old Gretsch as an investment.

Maybe a new Brian Setzer?

Pure sex!
