the capital punishment lottery

I missed Genius on R4 last week, with Dave Gorman, but I learnt of one of the ideas - which amazingly wasn't considered Genius - from the Radio Times: The Capital Punishment Lottery. The names of everyone who has voted to bring back the death penalty are stored until someone is wrongfully executed. A draw follows for a pro-capital punishment voter's name to make up for the innocent life that's just been taken.
