More information about Final Jeopardy:
The Channel Islands (Jersey and Guernsey being the largest two), are a group of islands situated between England and France in the English Channel. They’ve been administered separately since the 13th century. It is believed that the collective name “Channel Islands” dates from the Royal Navy circa 1830.
The Channel Islands (as well as the Isle of Man) are self-coverning Crown Dependencies, not part of the United Kingdom. They have their own legislative assemblies, administrative, fiscal, and legal systems, and are not represented in Parliament.
