A senior politician in Jersey has said it is time for the island to break the "thrall of Whitehall" and declare independence from the UK.
Sir Philip Bailhache told The Guardian:
I feel that we get a raw deal. I feel it's not fair … I think that the duty of Jersey politicians now is to try to explain what the island is doing and not to take things lying down.
The island should be prepared to stand up for itself and should be ready to become independent if it were necessary in Jersey's interest to do so.
