We seem to be on some sort of downwards glideslope for the last 30 years or so!

Sadly your right. Nobody cares  and we seem to be only covering governments mistakes over and over again. The island is in a mess.  That guy Charles in his video said an important thing . That hotel owners have painted the buildings ready for tourists and the promenade is a mess. Government are holding people back.

I looked at the love card another waste,  and three places  where you could spend involved the Sefton. Who in the right mind is  going to take money out of their bank account and put it on that card and spent it there. How many times have we paid them already. They think we’re  daft. It has to stop.

Have to say I couldn't see the point of that card.

They were told that right from the outset but still chose to go ahead with it. Money to waste don'tcha know

Did it give a discount or something?  

TBH I would have to be paid to go to the Sefton other than for a drink before a show at the Villa or Gaiety.  And that would only be because Sam Webb's is a bit of a dump.

Neither could I. Why would anyone put their hard earned cash on a card where your restricted. For many  people eating out is a luxury and  a treat. It’s like hidden dictatorship. This is what you should be doing.

Yes but you’re a user of the card. If hasn’t been created to be of any benefit to card users. It’s been created to be of benefit to the card scheme provider and the DfE.

Did it give a discount at all?  Otherwise I can't see the point.  Even with a discount there are places that I wouldn't choose to go to anyway and that would include the Sefton as I said above.

We must be to let them carry on in the manner that they do!

The island is small and I think it’s a case of who you know gets the votes. It will be telling  what the numbers are that don’t vote any more as they know it will be the same.

I suspect like a lot of gift cards they were banking on lots never being redeemed.

Aah, I see.  

Didn't Jersey have a card that was preloaded with £100 to encourage people to go out and use the hospitality sector again? What did we do?  Produce a card that had limited (unpopular)venues, no discount and had to be fully funded by the user?

Master stroke!

I think it did a couple of quid but I’m not sure if you had a time frame to spend . To be honest when I seen the Sefton I had seen enough and stopped reading about it.

Yes Jersey gave everyone a free £100 to spend in local shops
