Designer Designed for the Wealthy by the Wealthy, ( The DDWW secret plan )
Many leading members of this Government are very intelligent and very wealthy. The question needs to asked, has a secret lifestyle plan for Jersey been formulated by those in high office?
To start the debate let us focus on human nature. We all want like minded, people to share our time with in a beautiful, safe secure setting. We want relatively easy links to Europe and the UK. We need stimulation, mostly from our like minded friends but also from society at large the arts and entertainment .Those leaders in the judiciary and government seem to be part of an elite wealthy group, Jersey has the landscape and infrastructure described.
After an economic boom period over the last few decades Jersey has an excellent infrastructure. Taxpaying companies and islanders have paid cash for the airport, schools, libraries, marinas etc.
Society has changed drastically. It used to be the not so well off paid little tax but Jersey has developed into a two tier society. The cost of servicing Jersey is being addressed by continually charging the low and middle earners more and charging those that have great wealth less. In a fair society all should pay their fair share.
So it may take years, but here is the plan and we (they) are well on the road to paradise. Let us have no more than thirty thousand very wealthy people living on Jersey, very much like some of the leaders of the judiciary, civil service and powerful political elite. They will feel amongst their own.
Problems and solutions to make Jersey a paradise for the very wealthy.
Close down the centre of St. Helier to cars (even for the majority of town residents) and offer a bus service that all but closes down during the winter evenings and allow taxis to be very expensive. When the chance presents itself to destroy a useful busy car park in St Helier, show no mercy. By reducing parking and decent facilities for the transportation of the non wealthy their quality of life will be affected, and again this will encourage them to leave. Close down services like patient travel and senior citizen services. When questioned the stock answer is get a bike, always use the green answer and excuse.
Jersey’s future plan will include having hundreds of private jets paying landing fees. The more expensive travel becomes for the none wealthy the better. A ship for Freight is important but the wealthy will not accept several hours to get to the UK so if we lose fast passenger ships, less choice makes travel more expensive. This will only inconvenience the non wealthy we are trying to relocate away from the island encouraging them to leave sooner.
Emergencies must be dealt with, but also increase waiting times for non essential operations further. Even though a patient may have trouble walking and be in pain make them wait at least a year for a hip replacement ( the time quoted at the present time). Have all and any reciprocal agreements with any other country terminated by any means. This again will not affect the wealthy able to secure a hip operation in two weeks if they pay.
The wealthy love their toys and marinas come into this plan. Have a policy of inviting big super-yachts into Jersey and this will catch on. Pay no attention to islander’s complaints, just keep giving them less and charging them more for their little boats. The best plan is to take away simple facilities like mud berths to make way for the more expensive luxury yachts. This fits in nicely with the major overall plan.
Planning and building.
Allow and encourage wealthy lavish properties to be built, however it’s important to make it as difficult ( and as expensive ) as possible for the not wealthy. Give permission ( and encouragement ) to build luxury property (apartments esspecially) by developers that are unaffordable for the average islander. To accelerate the process, form a company, put all the public’s billions of pounds worth of land and buildings into its portfolio. Then develop (or sell of land to developers) as per the main plan to develop expensive upmarket projects.
The auditor general is on a contract if he makes too much noise, have a word or offer him more money. Should that not work make sure his three year contract is not extended.
The administration of Jersey and immigration and costs.
As the number of islanders dwindles, immigration must be tightened. No inheritance tax and a society expressly designer designed for the wealthy by the wealthy will have no problems attracting the well heeled from overcrowded violent multinational countries like the UK as is the present policy.Wealthy applicants seeking to become residents at the present time, need to contact Mr Nigel Phillpot ex executive from tourism. His full time position over several years, is that of facilitator (Mr fix all for the wealthy applicant). To contact him just contact the Jersey Government.
The sum of an applicants wealth required for residency will be reviewed annually. A figure of twelve million Euro's or Pounds sterling is suggested as a possible minimum benchmark for the future.
The public sector has been far too large for years, so as the population gets smaller so will the administration base. This will not apply to the two top levels of management because without their enthusiastic help in a team effort, this paradise for the rich would never have been possible. The unions will be fought from within these mini empires until perfect efficiencies’ of department is achieved.
Make no mistake and be clear any visionary politician or high ranking public employee who lets the side down will be attacked by the masters with full weight of the various departments and resources available.
