Unfortunately we will not be getting the fuel allowance this year as we are supposedly 5 degrees warmer in Brittany!  That is what they told me.

I didnt even get a £10 xmas bonus last year!

No, sorry didn't see that, I usually only go on Anglo info when I need to sell something or find out something, too busy normally. I'll have to do a bit more selling now though, to keep warm this winter!

I thought that petition had received enough signatures, obviously not. They need to come here January and February.  Then tell us sicily is colder. I went to sicily December, we were in shorts some days, the Sicilians were in great coats. It is what you are used to.

There was petition about this some while ago for us ex pats but it did not receive enough signatures.

Too late now.

"And wasn't all this discussed ad nauseum on every expat forum many months ago?"

Yes - the subject has been done to death on just about every forum you can think of-except the ones that the OP reads.

"It is a fallacy that Italy is always hot-in my last winter there in Central Itany it got down to -13 c"

You appear to have got hold of the wrong end of the stick here- The UK anti-expat brigade headed up by Ian Duncan Smith has decreed that Italy-even the south - even Sicily- is colder than France so is qualified to recieve winter fuel payment.

We were in Italy this time of year once and we were sunbathing in swim suits on a beach!
