Icesave and the Channel Islands

There is a good thread on Icesave over on Dadi’s blog, Economic Disaster Area.

This includes investors from Guernsey in the Channel Isles, who have been left out of the negotiations.

We have had several holidays on Jersey, the largest of the Channel Isles, so I am always interested in news from that quarter.

They are a remnant of the Duchy of Normandy, which was where William the Conqueror came from. When the Anglo-Normans lost their possessions on the (French) mainland, the isles remained loyal to “The Duke”, as the Queen is referred to.
