The Steam Packet’s current owners will open a ski facility with the £124 million they get from government.

The private slope will be made of £10 notes and £1 and £2 coins, and may double up as a swimming pool.

Meanwhile, Tynwald members are describing the buyout as “a chance in a generation” – although cuts to the health service may mean that generation’s lifetime is shorter than expected.

After unexpectedly finding the £124 million down the back of a Treasury couch, the Council of Ministers decided not to spend it on roads, prescription fees, homelessness, unemployment, long-term illness or a chemotherapy unit at Noble’s Hospital.
