Problematic, scratchcards

Hot on the heels of the British punters who found negative numbers a tad confusing, now trouble in Turkey:

"The Finance Ministry announced Friday that scratchies issued by the lottery agency that featured a map of Turkey, with buyers scratching off the eastern part of the map to see if they have won anything, will no longer be sold in order to put an end to the criticism. In recent days reports appeared in some newspapers that criticized the fact that buyers had to scratch off the eastern part of the map, with some claiming that the scratchies carried an implicit separatist message....It said the criticisms voiced in the media had spurred Finance Minister Kemal Unakıtan to order an inquiry and the ministry had decided to withdraw the scratchies that featured the map to end any misunderstanding".

Just say no to the National Lottery.....

That's rather clever, really. They could try that in the Ukraine.

Indeed, or Caledonian / Sassenach versions for either side of the Tweed.
