Lets hope "Jon" is not serious with his comment of "living in a rural place should be a privilege something to aim for in life" I cannot believe that people hold those sort of views in this day and age. Would he prefer that all of the less well paid people were herded onto a rock in the channel so that those who have been lucky enough to land jobs with enormous inflated wage packets don't have to drive past those dreadful ugly estates in their range rovers. How utterly ridiculous ! Many of those living in social housing now were brought up in the rural areas he talks about as their parents could afford to purchase property no matter what job they did as mortgages were within the means of ordinary working people not like today unfortunately the states of Guernsey have to take the responsibility for this sad state of affairs as they have raked in the cash from the banking industry and allowed the population to suffer with overinflation of. House prices utility bills rents etc . That is the reason people in many jobs cannot afford to buy a house no matter how many hours they work in a day .
