The problem here is that we have got into a mindset that says a thing is only worth it's financial worth and have confused cost with a loss. By paying taxes I feel I am buying services from the States of Guernsey and one of those things is good, affordable access to cultural and sports facilities. This might cost money but the benefit to sports and cultural groups and individuals is a huge benefit to the Island. Handing these facilities over to private contractors will inevitably raise prices and this will lead to less access and choice for everyone.
