Guernsey gets it right again or maybe not ?

This means a ladder of life or to put it another way maybe a bigger house, car you decide we are all different. What happens if all the big and lets face it dream properties are bought out by wealthy immigrants. So are we using them or are they taking serious advantage of softer tax laws ( no inheritance tax etc ) to the detriment of the islands community spirit. Are they bottle necking (outbidding) the Guernsey business classes, I can see the sense of having rich immigrants flashing credit cards with no limit, but I can also see the negative side.
