Indeed. but those who had been in the long employ of Government (a relatively stress free life in  itself) will have been long retired in their relative youthfulness, and living a healthy stress free life with a guaranteed nice wedge dropping on their door mat every second week of the month.

Seems like lots according to MR News. Plus £40M returned to reserves after agreement on VAT via FERSA.

So JW voted against the Budget (the only one to do so), citing undemocratic practice, which he'd stated pre-Budget.

However both he and Chris Robertshaw are also questioning the Budget's figures, claiming spin and calling for independent verification of the Island's finances, both tallying with Watterson's earlier call for an Auditor General.

Sowing seeds of doubt eh?
