Jersey: Blood, Sweat and Fears

In 2008 I blogged:
I still remember an article in the first ever issue of the New Statesman that I ever bought - it must have been in 1977 or even 1976. 
It was headed "John Bull's Other Islands" and dealt with the cliquey and undemocratic nature of local politics in the Channel Islands.
These videos of a television documentary from 1993 - featuring a young Stuart Syvret - are not that old, but they do confirm that concern about the governance of the Channel Islands goes back a long way.
