Do you live on Sark? Maybe the barclays didn't just open businesses, maybe they opened peoples eyes. Finally people are told about how underhanded and deceptive chief pleas is. Finally people realise that they do not have to just be told 'this is the way we do it here. This is the way we'll always do it here. If you dont like it then leave'. Maybe, with a considerable amount of diplomacy and tact, this whole situation could have been the best thing to ever happen to Sark. But because of the lack of tact and diplomacy. Because of self serving politicians using their powers to block things they dont want. Because of the whole ' its ours' attitude. Because of all these things the situation is a mess, the island is a mess, the politicians continue to vote each other in to continue preserving their idyll. It makes me sad that my island has come to this. And it makes me angry that the people who want the barclays out are the wealthy and retired who dont need a regular job and source of income. So whenever this all comes to a head, on matter what the outcome, just remember that the Sark that they want to preserve is Feudal Sark. Lords and Peasants.
