The ruling Government of the Island of St Helena will introduce a stimulus package in line with other suffering democratic governments such as USA and England
When asked why it was necessary given the nominal population that lives there (2008 estimate 239 natives), the President of St Helena said that everybody else was doing it so why not their tiny democracy.
"We would feel a bit left out and disengaged if we didn't puff ourselves up and look macho on this issue. Besides, think of the publicity its bringing" Mr Small, President of the United Democratic Republic of the Island of St Helena commented to a brace of media on the island for a drunken weekend of sex and debauchery.
The Island of St Helena is famous for being the last place of residence that Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte of France kept until his miserable death in 1826. The only time it has been prominent in the world press since has been for a light plane crash that killed four people in 1973 and that only leaked out after fourteen months of silence.
Islander people are generally outgoing and don't quibble about their isolation at the bottom of the globe (except one resident who described St Helena as being the arse end of the universe).
The stimulus package is expected to provide more pleasure facilities such as massage parlours, escort services and strip clubs.
