Camelot’s chief executive has backed increasing the default minimum age limit for playing the National Lottery from 16 to 18 amid concerns children can spend up to £350 a week gambling online. Nigel Railton said he was "reasonably relaxed" about a Government review into whether the limit should be raised, and would support the move if ministers concluded it is necessary. The comments come as MPs and peers are calling for the National Lottery's age limit of 16 to be scrapped, after fears it has created a loophole allowing 16 and 17 year olds to gamble on scratchcard-like online games. Currently 16-year-olds can spend up to £350 a week on online lottery games that offer top prizes of up to £500,000. The normal gambling age limit is 18, but an exemption was made for the National Lottery when it was created in 1994 to lower its limit to 16.

Winning the gold in an international sports competition like the Olympics is a great source of national pride in the Philippines and all over the world, with few exceptions. This has long been established by cross-country survey research. In the International Social Survey Program’s latest National Identity module, fielded circa 2013 in 33 countries, a country’s achievements in sports proved to be its top source of national pride, among 10 sources that were probed (see table). The ISSP is a global network, now consisting of over 40 members, that annually does a scientific national survey on a mutually agreed topic, for the express purpose of comparative research. Each member finances its own survey, and contributes its raw data to a central archive freely accessible to scientists worldwide.
