.........has just been won by one British person.. After the first million I wouldn't know what to do with the rest.

You could use the rest to wield power - that's what mega money buys!
Example (a small one): you could hire a top-notch private eye to dig the dirt on Rupert Murdoch and really scupper his BSkyB bid. I know it's pretty much scuppered anyway but off the top of my head that's the sort of thing you could do.
And/or you could set up your own charitable foundation and try and do a bit of good in the world.
Just keep an eye out for somebody uploading shots to the epz Gallery taken on the new Sigma SD1 or one of those Phase 1 digital backs ! !
You could do some good with all that money.
Before they get too cocky about it, I just won £200 million on a Nigerian lottery!! Didn't even buy a ticket - my lucky day!!
If I won that amount of money, first thing I'd do is employ someone to deal with all the begging letters!
Give £100 mil away to charity. Another chunk for friends and family and keep the rest......thats just too much money for one person.
Agreed a substantial amount should go to charity but I would want to have personal oversight of that charity - to ensure the money reaches those it's supposed to be helping and a minimum on admin costs. So I would set up a new charity.
Maybe similar to the "Distressed Gentlefolks Aid Association", except it would be for Distressed Photographers!
There is a farm down the road from us (Sturts Farm) that was turned into a refuge/school for down syndrome adults and children...they grow lots of fruit and veg and sell it in the farm shop......its a fabulous place and its kept open by charitable donations........I'd give them a couple of mil...
With that kind of money I would have to dedicate at least £50m to many charities - of my choice.
Fast cars, fast women, drink and parties, the rest i'd just squander.........
Every Nikon Lens would be in my grubby hands, especially a 24mm Tilt and shift, a hell of a lot of UK based charities would be getting rather large donations and I would be handing in my notice rather swiftly!
Good luck to the person who won and I wish them anonymity to spend the money and set up their family for generations to come!
It wisnae me - but I know who it was...
Single person? Or a syndicate?
Quote: Every Nikon Lens would be in my grubby hands
Ok come on - aim higher!
It would be a Hasselblad H4D-60 for me, with its complete set of lenses (11 in all, I think - each a four figure sum!)
