    Being of a certain age, the Winter Fuel Allowance hit my bank account today.
    I'm sure Mrs Baldy will have ideas for spending it but does anyone have more sensible ideas? :wink:
    I just see bottles of malt in front of my eyes. :roll:
  2. Scotch sounds fine to me. Internal central heating fuel.
    Go for it.
  3. Absolutely disgusting, you mean you don't have to stand in line, queuing outside a Sub-Post Office in the wind and rain moaning with all the other old crocks about the state of the country?
    What else is there to spend it on? Wine women and song!

    Silver surfer dontchano, well I would be if I had hair. :)
  5. Porn and beer, simples :D
  6. And if you have any left after that, you can just waste it.
  7. Heating bills.

    No, this is the NAAFI. Porn, Prossies and a gimp mask.

    Was getting worried there!!!!!!!
  9. If you're in receipt of the allowance, you are probably a poor OAP, therefore I suggest that you economise where possible to make it last longer;

    Try Frosty Jack cider instead of premium beer, it is cheap and cheerful, tastes like creosote, but it gets you there.

    Rather than a twenty something prozzie, go for a Rooney reject, more experienced and again cheap, look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves.

    Have a merry winter festival!
  10. Get the bedroom kitted out as a dungeon and several cheap ho's and if there's anything left spend it on beer :)
  11. If you're just going to waste it,send it back to Cyclops.The country needs it!
  12. Buy a round of drinks you tight sod ;)

    I can take a joke but some people deserve to buried up to the neck in sand.

    Head first!!
  14. Jesus, He said 'Winter Fuel Allowance', he hasn't won the Euromillions. He'll be lucky to get a decent w*nk mag with it.
    Just out of interest how much is the allowance these days, I'm sure I could Google it but I don't want to. Is it still the Kings Ransom it used to be? It was always good to see the elderly lighting huge Cuban cigars with £10 notes when their allowance arrived, free from worrying about heating their homes, not a care in the world.

  15. £250 I believe
