I'm with Forest, Dave, it's not the public who are demanding these things, it's politicians and the civil servants who run our island making these choices whilst the rest of us try as best we can to tighten our belts and spend less. The airport project is a classic example, cheaper perfectly acceptable options available, but most expensive option chosen, then, to add insult to injury, foreign labor brought in to do the job, not even housed in existing local accommodation (that would put at least some monies back into the economy), whilst the local building industry is dying on it's feet. Seems to be do as I tell you not as I do with our establishment, and I for one am entirely sick of my money being spent like there's no tomorrow.
