£3.8 Billion

Recommended Posts

Using the lower US definition of a billion rather than the older UK one, and a population of 80,000, that equates to £475,000 for every person living on the island. It's incredible.

I wouldn’t worry, Tyncrackpotwalders will be telling us, everything in the Garden is rosy and the island is booming. I’m positive the upper eschelons of Government will do their best to dismiss the newspaper - after all IOMG can’t cope or handle the truth!

So many zeros, they just start to wash over you after a while. 

You are Alf Cannan and I claim my £5.00.

If he's Alf Cannan, he'd be claiming it off you!

That's okay then.

(To paraphrase Sarah Silverman) because £470,000 would be unforgivable:

 

 

And yeah, the joke is worth looking up.

As long as you have an exit plan of around 2021 when the reserves run out you're okay. If you fancy staying and buying an overpriced house in the next few years you're left holding an expensive baby.
