The island of Sark WAS a last outpost of feudalism. A real oddity in the modern world, they had a system all their own which WORKED.

They have been dragged into the modern world by a pair of millionaire brothers who bought land in Sark, and ever since have bent the island to their own purposes. Most recently they took the court to the European Court of Human Rights who ruled that Sark must change it's constitution and change to a democratic system.

Sad in itself for those of us who have always lived next door to the place - aftre all it's a tiny rock - no-one is forced to live there - why shouldn't they choose how they govern themselves.

Yesterday, they held their first general election. The results did not go the way that the millionaire brothers hoped for, so they have now withdrawn ALL their investments in the island!!!!

AND THAT'S DEMOCRACY?!?!?!?!

AAAAARRRRGH
