Is this the black hole in the island's finances?

Can;t be Jersey's finances in the hole looks far too liquid. Although judging by the coloure it could be run off from the States Chambers.

Thats what you get for too much tarmac and concrete and not enough soil to soak up the water.

Continue building on the land especially low lying land like St Clements and you will find the water has no where to go.

Someone at planning REALLY needs to consider long term impact.

Somewhere else for the parish police to hide with their speed gun.

Loving the typical day at work for States’ employees ...

Four men out on the job getting Christmas overtime rates, naturally.

=============================================

Man one - in charge of putting in the hose to drain the water.

Man two – in charge of looking at the hole filled with water.

Man three – union rep, in charge of pointing at said hole.

Man four – responsible for walking round and round hole.
