More cash handouts (this time in Jersey)

In completely unrelated news to the Modern Day Robin Hood story it was reported that property tycoon and Multi-Millionaire David Kirch has started yesterday to hand out £100 (USD195) early Christmas presents to every Jersey (channel islands) citizen aged 70 or above.

Since yesterday, anyone aged 70-plus can go to his or her parish hall to claim vouchers worth the amount to spend at any Checkers, Benests, Safeway or M & S store. With an estimated 9,000 people aged 70 or more, the giveaway is worth almost USD 2 millions.

Mr. Kirch who turned 70 this July wanted to mark his birthday in a different way then throwing a lavish party. “…At first I guessed that there would be about 3,000 of us and was very surprised to find out that instead there are more than three times that number – one in ten of the population…” he said.
