All Jersey residents are being given £100 each

Recommended Posts

IoM Govt will be taking £100 off each resident. And that's just for starters...

Great idea!

Fags & booze all round to compound an already horrendous looking NHS treatment backlog.

I does rather smack of desperation, as some of us pointed out some days agoMalta tried a similar scheme, which seems to have turned out more expensive than forecast.  But the simple fact is that the sectors they are directed to in those places, don't seem to need them on the Island.  Something that those demanding we should be more like Jersey seem to be missing.

(I assume no one is daft enough to say we should be more like Malta:

who pretty much defined how to make your second wave worse than your first)

Malta still has less deaths than us (14 which is still 10 less in total than us) for a population of around 400,000 people so what’s it getting so wrong? So their first and second wave combined is still not as bad us for fatalities.

Yes but they have a national debt two & a half times GDP and really know how to make money work for the nation as a whole

Here it will be grants for landowners to help them get by

Our deaths were rather unlucky though.

I should think so too. I used to spend more than that on a night out 20 years ago. Its reassuring in a way that perhaps there is still hope for the new generation.

People can't keep telling us that somehow our deaths don't count because they were mostly at Abbotswood and then saying they matter because they were more than other countries'.  Actually five of Malta's already relate to the most recent wave (as you know there's always a lag) and they actually had fewer cases per head than we did in the first one.

I look back through the COVID thread and some of the suggestions that lockdown could be a starting point for an economic reset and a fairer way in how we did things, Universal Basic Income for all etc etc.

Chances of it happening?

People spent more than that each weekend night in Douglas 15- 20 years ago, when times were different to today

I’m pretty sure that those take aways and restaurants that changed to deliveries, will do well as they have expanded their client / customer base. We have learned that buying local is important to the economy. 
Downside, is that we all realised how good Amazon is.
