Sark seems to be voting for or against the Daily Telegraph. It is a good basis for the island's first election. I dimly remember going to Sark and being told that the neighbouring island of Alderney was no more than a bunch of drunks clinging to a rock in the Channel. There are some elements of pot and kettle in this since my last memory of the place involved the consumption of heroic quantities of sloe gin and the worst hangover of my life. But I am sure they will approach the important issue of the Daily Telegraph with all the earnest sobriety it deserves.
