Unlucky lottery ticket.

Alastair Darling was disappointed when his plan to revive the UK economy failed late on Friday.

"I had 4 numbers on the Euromillions and 1 lucky star." said Alastair. "If I had got the other main number and another lucky star we'd have been laughing."

Alastair Darling had earlier revealed that he had used a large sum of treasury money to buy Euromillions tickets in an attempt to kick start the economy.

"Even though I did not win the jackpot £100 million we did get a profit of £350 pounds worth of winnings. Not bad for a £1.5 million pound outlay." continued the chancellor.
