Binge drinking and drug culture crackdown launched

booze_900

NEW measures to crackdown on Guernsey’s binge drinking and drug culture have been released today.

Matt Fallaize

GleP,

You make some good points, but I think we should be very circumspect about drawing such a distinction between "youngsters" and the rest of society.

I am sure we would find that the consump...

I don't know how these kids do it. More than a couple of pints and I'm ready for bed!

That aside, I don't really agree with the price control measures - they end up penalising those who can drink ...

GM,

You claim that things were done well in the past but that recently there has been a lack of investment in the island's infrastructure. This is demonstrably incorrect. Indeed, the very opposite ...

Matt Fallaize

Resigned,

If T&R's forecasting of the past 12 months has been overly optimistic, I am confident it is an aberration. The Treasury has a long history of conservative forecasting which later look...

GST 'could force small businesses to close'

Cruise_900

SOME of Guernsey’s smaller businesses could close down if a general sales tax is introduced in the island, says critics.

GM

IWV

Not really, but there are far too many people who can't recall why we were forced into change, and who think that merely "taxing companies" would solve the problem. If it were that simple then ...

Unfortunately you are not really grasping the situation.

Firstly, Guernsey's finance industry bears no correlation whatsoever to the UK's bonus/greed culture which caused such mayhem...

I fully accept you have no interest in the finance industry however many have directly or indirectly. You seem to be saying you are happ to discriminate against the poor Guernseyman that is tr...

IWV. I agree with you but I think that the level of debate and unwarranted remarks that frequently appear on here do nothing to encourage that. I think its a shame because robust debate is healthy, a...
