SO,is everyone agreed. you DO now need travel insurance[whoever instigated the changes]
health cover if you travel to the Channel Islands? As I already said, as was reported.. Accident and emergencey admissions are not effected.It would come as a shock to most people I think, if they were unlucky enough to need non emergencey treatment while in the Channell Islands,to then be told it was they,that had to stump up!Usefull information to prospective travellers I would have thaught!
Civilisation being safe!?.. HAS IT EVER BEEN? Plenty have paid a dear price to keep US safe!

Yet again another tradition destroyed - I think I would rather see Channel Islanders getting treated over here free than hordes of Lithunians - Latvians - Estonians etc etc!!!
