Another question would be - why can't British nationals apply for the USA Green Card Lottery??
The intention is to bring in immigrants from countries that have had low emigration levels to the US in the previous 5 years.

Ineligible countries
Those born in any territory that has sent more than 50,000 immigrants to the United States in the previous five years are not eligible to receive a diversity visa. For DV-2012, natives of the following nations are ineligible: Brazil, Canada, China (mainland-born), Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Poland, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and Vietnam. The entry period to apply for the DV-2012 was from October 5, 2010 to November 3, 2010.

Exemptions
The term 50,000 "immigrants" is partial and refers only to people who immigrated via the family-sponsored, employment, or immediate relatives of U.S. citizen categories, and does not include other categories such as refugees, asylum seekers, NACARA beneficiaries, or previous diversity immigrants. It is for this reason that Cuba, Ukraine, Iran, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Russia and Venezuela are not on the ineligible list despite sending over 50,000 immigrants in the previous five years.
