From Maureen Bourniquel.
As a Channel Islander – indeed, as a person – I am appalled by the action of the Barclay brothers in Sark.
They pushed for reform, and when the reform came and offered democracy, the brothers’ dislike of how people voted means that they are closing businesses in the island and making people redundant.
If something like this happened in a third world country, there would be a furore in the United
Nations. Surely the days of tied voting in the British Isles went out in the 1830s?
Let us hope that the Barclays’ wide media interests do not prevent ordinary people from expressing their repugnance with this disgusting bullying.
