The means by which the unemployed in Britain are paid. It is a cheque which can be cashed rather like a postal order but is payable to the addressee only.
Giro day is the day a dosser gets his/her cheque (drugs day). The giro is a great source of contention as a doley
(the unemployed are said to be "on the dole" hence they are doleys) may get a giro but owe all of it to their debtors and then have to duck and dive and seek others from whom they can borrow drugs money. Usually it is other doleys they owe money to and therefore giro day is a day when you have to be up early and out the house with your cheque before the others come and try to get you to pay what you owe.
