Will the Inland Revenue take a compassionate line and give us something back too...?

I've just been told that that is one of my daftest thoughts;)

I am all for the generous mood of the government and the tax payer. Keep the 'extra' payments rolling states me and mine. Do you think that there is any chance of getting some fur lined safety grip snow boots. I have got the silly 'senior citizens' hat and coat :o)

Would mention that we have had the Christmas bonus of £10 plus the winter fuel allowance,which partly paid the leccy and gas bill, but still waiting for these little extra incentives.All donations very welcome.

Don't all get too excited.

Haven't we got to spend it as soon as possible to get the (GB) economy going again?

That's the trouble with living in Scotland - the weather's too warm for us to qualify!

I've never had a cold weather payment yet.

But these payments don't go to all pensioners, do they?
I understood they only go to those pensioners claiming other 'top-up' type benefits as well (ie if you have other incomes you will not qualify).

Anyway, what do us hardened Scotland dwellers need extra for anyway - let those namby-pamby Southerners have it, they cannot handle it!! (;-0)
