London - (Big Money Balls Mess): A prominent government front bencher has been outed as the secret winner of last week's £113 million lottery draw.
The anonymous MP - previously an all-party House of Commons adviser on the lottery - is said to be shielding himself from the glare of publicity to avert a PR disaster.
A lottery pay-out source said today the cheque - the biggest single UK won ever - had already been handed over and the winner's identity was entirely a private matter.
In depth TV facial analysis of Chershire Cat grinning front bench MPs has so far failed to spot the lucky sod although Palace of Westmonster sources said today that 'it's the newly proposed government poverty/equality tsar'.
Ex-Tory Party chairman Lord Ashcroft is worth about $3 billion plus or minus the odd skipload of Eussian roubles.
