markB. I am puzzling over your post...... are you being serious or am I missing the irony? Forgive me if it is the latter! Obviously the airport runway should always have benefitted from recurring up-grading and maintenance which would have negated the need for the over-blown project that is now going on. Similarly the harbour quays which I gather have been allowed to deteriorate into a shocking state. As for recycling, you would have had to have your head buried in the sand over the last 30 years to not know that recycling would become increasingly necessary. And Guernsey's looming waste problem has been easy to predict for a lot longer than that and yet there were no plans to reduce the amount of waste being generated- in fact the complete opposite was happening. Another big flashy project hatched through lack of earlier planning. Transport is another issue that, with the implicit backing of the Guernsey public, has been ignored for decades creating a bigger and bigger headache which one way or another is going to cost us plenty. The good years of any industry in Guernsey are always cyclical- they never last for ever. When the going is good, that's the time to prepare for the downturn by ensuring that the infrastructure is robust and able to withstand a period of slower economic activity.
