  1. Since comments are not enabled on the Guernsey thread, I will use this thread to point out that the Channel Islands are not English (as you wrote) or British. They comprise two Crown dependencies that are not part of the United Kingdom or the European Union. Guernsey is part of the Bailiwick of Jersey which comprises the islands of Guernsey, Alderney and Sark. Each island has its own legislature. Channel Islanders are very proud of their independence.

  2. I really enjoyed/appreciated the information about Guernsey and the other Channel Islands. I must admit that I was a bit put off by the "as you wrote" and when I reread the post about the Guernsey Jumper I was pleased to see that it says that is made on the English Channel island.

  3. Interesting way of wishing to read a location as a Nationality for the sake of argument old chap ............
    Guernsey IS an English Channel island , just as the Isle of Man IS an Irish Sea island . Why is a correct location description such a red flag to you ?
