This is just plain wrong on so many levels. The guy taking all this money from his own mother? For real? I mean, I'll admit, I have my fair share of groups with my mother over many things, some of which deal with finances. Does that mean I'd take advantage of her to steal a jackpot? Not at all. I'd feel horrible if I did. And to use it to buy property like a kid buys bags of candy with his/her allowance? The guy must have no heart whatsoever. I hope he gets what's coming to him. Some kids are never too old to get a "spanking" from their parents.

I'm sure we're missing something here. We can never get the whole story. What if she was a terrible mother? Maybe shes just trying to manipulate her son so he suffers.

While that certainly is a possibility, I find it unlikely, since if they had that kind of relationship, Urquhart would not have let Orender sign for the winnings.
