    I suppose my first actions are to take care of the relative and give her a good send off.

    Then I'd buy a really big house around the corner from my Uni and totally pimp it out. I'd give money to my family so there all secure then I'd just continue on with my degree like normal, well I say normal my nights out and activities would just get more extravagant and I'd be able to take friends on holidays casually.

    I wouldn't give lots of the money to charities straight away, I'd research to see what they do and how they handle the money as I get a feel quite a bit would go missing if I gave a huge amount, instead I'd set up centers or something around the country to help people out, buy blocks of flats where the rent is free for those who really need it and catering is included and in the case of kids or teens education is provided but not forced, they could get into academics or they could do apprenticeships, just giving them a choice and help.

    I'd dedicate most of my time to using the money wisely and staying on the project helping to improve England first and then branch out if successful.

    Although personally i'd have Blom over Tony G as he annoys me
    Tony G annoys everyone. That's the whole point of Tony G! :yep:

    I'd give £3bn to a charitable foundation. Of the £1bn I keep, I'd spend a bit of it, invest a bit of it, maybe in film-making and put some to one side for a rainy day. Probably look to spending at least half of it on good causes.

    OR

    By the time I get the money I hoard it as it suddenly seems like £4bn isn't as much as I thought, and I go all Howard Hughes and lock myself away hiding from germs with tissue boxes on my feet and bottled urine strewn around the room. :hat:

    I'm "fascist" for wanting a weekly massage and the end of Kim Kardashian? :confused:
    No. He probably meant you are fascist for using your wealth to cripple an entire political idea and therefore segregate a huge proportion of our population and render their beliefs invalid.

    If I had 4 billion pounds:
    - I'd first pay for the relatives funeral.
    - I'd set up my close friends and families in comfort and see their lives see no financial burden.
    - I'd volunteer both my money and time in conservation projects around the world: especially marine conservation and, in turn, learn to scuba.
    - I'd buy Blackburn Rovers from the horrible Venky's and invest heavily so that we can knock the Mancunians off their high horses.
    - I'd buy my local pub.
    - Finally I'd like to think that somewhere in the world I'd meet someone I'd like to settle down with and do so.

    Oh and, yeah, I'd quit university by going straight to my tutor and telling him the bad news whilst flipping the bird and walking out.

    Penthouses in London and New York. Lake house on Lake Superior. Donate but to only small community charities (possibly local Lions clubs). Donate to smaller projects in developing countries. Put some away or my children and grandchildren.

    Put at least 1 billion into 10 different cash ISAs
    Start several businesses
    Create science foundations in less developed countries to encourage children to choose science
    Fund for less privileged students to attend private/independent schools
    and of course: Paying off parents' mortgage etc is a given
