Seen this in fort kinnaird (Edinburgh) poundstrecher, lot's of bags still available. Might be a nationwide clear out but check with your local store. With the rubbish weather we've had it's not a bad idea to stock up at 50p a bag!

You think the usa is going to give you cheap oil?? The special relationship only works one way
Brilliant, that's just what I need for my steam powered dildo.

​More like 10 bob. 5 shillings would be 25p!
When I were a lad, we ad good British coal, it were grand, this cheap foreign coal tastes crap
It caused terrible pollution, smog so thick you could barely see through it at times. But you cant beat a big Coal fire for the warmth and the sheer look of it, we had a back boiler in the living room and now and then the water in the tank would get that hot it would start to boil an we used to have to run and turn the hot water taps on in bathroom and kitchen.

We had a system like that until we moved a few years ago, it cost a fortune to run and as soon as the fire died out the temperature in the house plummeted. If we forgot to open the back the bubbling would go crazy and scolding water would shoot out of an overflow the side of the house oO
We are all electric now and I really miss the cozy glow of the fire.... but I really don't miss all the mess and putting the fire in at 6am on a freezing cold morning....
Now I just flick a switch in September and leave it running until about May, a few fine tunes on a dial every few weeks and I'm done.... feels so lazy after all those years X)

It's been cheap oil for a while now, where have you been?
Damn it , cant get down there because I have just had a few drinks. However worth noting this is in the Edinburgh area which is a council designated smokeless zone. That still doesn't stop some of the clowns that stay in my area from burning full fat coal from their smelly stoves, and stuff everyone else who are coughing their lungs out. Its like being on Woodbine fags.

Yes, because you have to use ten times as much to last the same time as decent coal. Also, very smokey and coats the chimney quickly meaning you need to get the chimney stack brushed more frequently meaning more cost.

Does that make it easier to understand?

Oh I understood you perfectly the first time, I just thought you were talking pants.
I don't believe for a second you need 10 times as much. (_;)
I don't deny that it isn't going to be the best quality coal, but buying a few bags of coal for 50p each isn't going to cause an increased chimney cleaning nightmare.
Indeed the softer dustier coals are actually better for keeping the fire in overnight.

10 times as much? I call BS. Sounds like someone is butt hurt they can't get coal this cheap
It is false economy - I made a journey to my local store, they didn't have any, but I ended up spending £50 on all sorts of stuff I didn't realise I needed! Lol X)
This stuff should be banned. Causes havoc in terms of local pollution

Not going to happen. Oil at its lowest price ever & our nearest garage has just increased fuel by 2p a Ltr. Greedy co op .
GAH!! Anyone near there that's coming down to Northampton, pick me up twenty quids worth and I'll give you thirty.

Seriously though, I would love this to be local to me, sadness.

2p litre?
It was 99.09p a litre here 6 weeks ago, now 108.9p - up 9p in a month and a half! oO
Barstewards and F. Osborne always wanting more! Nothing good for joe public ever lasts for long today. Except hot deals of course!:D
Heat added
Don't give a toss about the smoke. More smoke the better. Don't care about the chimney either. It's all brick any build up will eventually burn away. Bargain.
Non where I live, but great find and post.

You really don't have a clue about how chimney fires start do you? If you did then you wouldn't have made such a stupid comment.

So you're an expert on them I presume. I know exactly how they start I've been burning solid fuel for ten years.

If you think bricks burn it shows how stupid you are.

It's not as old as the lies they tell us from university etc.

Coal can start to form after 2 weeks given the correct pressure and heat. The coal we burn is likely to be around 4500 years old.
I always think this when it's cheese that says aged for five years or something then it's got a use by of next week. Because after five years and a week, things really start to kick off.
Sorry to disappoint you pokettens,but...The conditions that would eventually create coal began to develop about 300 million years ago, during the Carboniferous period. Not 4500 years ago! Lignite coal is the lowest rank of coal. It has carbonized past the point of being peat, but contains low amounts of energy—its carbon content is about 25-35%. It comes from relatively young coal deposits, about 250 million years old. Do yourself a favour and READ what history tells us.There were NO Carboniferous rainforests 4500 years ago any more than there are now. Man was not around when these were formed. He comes along a few million years after these events.
