5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Grail for the unemployed, 11 July 2013
This review is from: Barrettine Methylated Spirit 500ml (Misc.)
Since being made redundant from the BBC I found myself in an unfortunate position. Do I tell my wife and kids that daddy's been let go (with a really insulting severance package), or do I still get up every day, eat breakfast, kiss the Mrs and head, not for the recently closed BBC Television Centre in Wood Lane, but to the Westfield shopping mall opposite. There to sit disconsolately whilst pondering the wreckage of my career.

And I'll admit life was bleak until I discovered Barretine's Methylated Spirit. No more hanging around Westfield, making a cup of tea stretch until lunchtime. Now I simply fill my thermos with Barretine's finest and spend the day in Shangri-la. As shopper come and go I regale them with my hilarious stories about Jeremy Paxman's pilchard fetish and how I stole Anne Robinson's shaving brush.

Some might say that the weather's gone wrong and that the world's all going to hell but I say, simply get yourself a Barretine's my friend and you'll be OK!
