Avoid sweeping statements and generalised moaning, particularly with regard to whole local authorities, governments or organisations
- These activities translate as "blah, blah, moan, moan" and do nothing to encourage constructive debate. If you have specific examples and/or reasoning, please refer to them and keep them relevant to the topic's subject matter.
Some 'generalised moaning' posts and comments have been removed

Gary Robinson doesn't think it's such a good deal - Former SIC leader disappointed by amount of islands deal funding pledged by government

£2.5 Million p/a per Council for Council for the first 10 years......
The SIC budget is +/- £2 Million p/w.
Yea, sure, its a 'great' deal giving us enough to pay for 9 days of council expenditure each year, when the Government contribution to the SIC budget has been falling for years.
It doesn't even start to make a dent in the cumulative historic underfunding deficit.
