The sad fact is that the States as a body STILL haven't proved that they can make the cuts in their spending Gavin promised in his manifesto that he would wish to see. In fact, I have seen very little evidence that any States department is even trying to make the cuts that are appropriate and necessary. There’s a lot of talk about reducing waste, but when it comes down to it, the States have gotten so used to the good times that they simply appear unable and unwilling to trim the proverbial fat.
