I have a feeling you may need to enhance your understanding: if there is a prospect of perpetual deficit then cash in the bank merely delays default but means continuing is reckless because of the indifference it would show to long term liabilities – and Jersey has ample of them

Jersey is going bust because of a deficit they never close.

The UK should run a permanent deficit because a surplus would be a near criminal idea.

Amazing how the same ideas can repose in the same brain really.
