Clandestine Uranium enrichment scheme

  (+5, -6)
(+5, -6)

Whereby a national government, for example a fictional country called "Iran" starts up a lottery.

Citizens buy the tickets, and government agencies buy other tickets, writing the name "Mr U. Ranium" on them.

The government then skews the results so Mr U. Ranium consistently wins, by a small but definite margin, more prizes than anyone else.

In this way, the Uranium is enriched, in an almost totally covert way.

       I love the word "clandestine". It sounds like a peal of bells.

       Hmm, you like it, but not enough to [+].   

       Had to bun myself (which feels kind of pervy) just to get back to zero rating.
