AN exceptional 12 months dominated by the Diamond Jubilee and London Olympics have made 2012 a year to celebrate, according to Christmas messages from the Bailiff, the Lieutenant-Governor and the Dean.

In their traditional Christmas messages published in today’s JEP, all three have written that it has been a year to remember.

But all three have also referred to people around the world who are struggling – whether at home, or abroad in the Congo, Syria and Afghanistan.

I am sure his memorable words will be of great comfort to those that have lost their jobs this year,and to the rest of us struggling to survive on the rock!!! Nothing to celebrate on Jersey really (apart from stopping the Plemont Fiasco)!

Perhaps the Dean, el Deano, is putting the ignorance of sexual equality and continued discrimination out of his mind in this end of war, winter, festival.

But all three have also referred to people around the world who are struggling, quotes the JEP.

Lets have a simple quiz. Which of the three mentioned above will have to make spending cutbacks after january 1st which is when the electricity increase starts.

The Bailiff being the odd one out as he will have to pay his own electricity account, guess who pays the others ?

Yes a short uplift from the worst recession since the 1930's, which could yet turn out making the 1930's look like a walk in the park!

2013 the year of increased misery for the vast majority. Very little to look forward to. Mind you one day less than this year, so that's a bonus!

Good point Davey.
