LETTER: The taste of extra money in the bank

SCOTT Morrison’s budget promise to give single, aged pensioners a one-off payment of $75 to assist them with their next power bill is welcomed.

However, in my case, it will not be used for the purpose intended.

I have my eye on a nice bottle of quality Barossa Valley shiraz, per courtesy of taxpayers.

Hopefully, the payment will be deposited in my bank account prior to election day in May as Labor’s boss Bill Shorten has indicated that he does not support the welcome budget initiative.
