Everybody's favourite Gary Brannan, Gary Brannan. ♪ I'm in the old-fashioned bustle my grandmother wore! ♪ He is, you know. And the bounciest man on the internet, Matt Gray. Willkommen, YouTube! In front of me, I've got an article from Wikipedia, and these folks can't see it. Every fact they get right is a point and a ding and there's a special prize for particularly good answers, which is… And today, we are talking about the Sark football team. Okay. Island off Jersey! Yeah, have a point. Have a point for that straight away. - Do they play football? - Is it about their... aagh! Yeah, but American football. On a boat in Greenwich. - What? - What? Cutty Sark... No? Already? Shall I leave? Yes. Yes, Sark is part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey. Okay, fair enough. What are the Channel Islands? Let's start really, really far out. Are they... some islands... in the English Channel, Tom? Yeah, you're not getting a point for that. - What? - What? You're not getting a point when I gave you the title! I don't understand the question, then. There's something special about, sort of, how they… Oh, are you asking me what they're called? Oh, Jesus f***. There's one called Jersey, there's one called Guernsey, - Go on. - ...and there's one called St Helen's? No. - No. - St Helen's is near Wigan! You're thinking of St Helena, and that's on the other side of the planet. Okay, yes... Alderney. Alderney is the other one, yes. Does one of them have a capital of St Helena of Guernsey? AUDIENCE MEMBER: Yes! Yes. I'm getting something right. That's my job! And the thing is, you're wrong, it's Saint Helier. When you say, “What are the Channel Islands?” my standard answer is usually, “Occupied France.” Yes, and have a point. Absolutely, they were the only bit… Did you just give a point for that? Well, that's one of the questions I was going to ask. They were the only bit of the United Kingdom, well, UK territory, that was actually taken by Germany in the Second World War. They were invaded in 1940, or '41. I forget the year. I wasn't there, why the f*** am I like that? Honestly. In 1940, but in terms of Britain, what are they? Crown territory. Yes. Have the point, they are a crown dependency, but they are not part of the United Kingdom. ♪ Tax haven, wider than a mile... ♪ Oh, sorry, I thought you were going for Goldfinger, there. - Same tune. - They are the same song. And they are the same people that live there! Is Sark the one where you don't have any motor vehicles? Is it still bicycles and horses and carts? Oh, yes, absolutely right. Sark is the one where cars are banned. Ladies and gentlemen, the Gary Brannan General Knowledge Edition. The, “Gary's mum and dad have been on holiday to the Channel Islands,” edition, and I sat through the photos. I need some slides... So was that just, “And this is not a car, and this is not a car, and this is not a car... “This looks like a car, but in the back... “very large hamster wheel.” “This looks like a car.” Pull up the bonnet: horse. Miniature horse? Yes. Oh, cracking, want one. Isn't Sark one where it is technically still run by a lord? - Feudal. - Feudal, I think it is something like that. Oh, he's getting all the points today, yes. He's on home turf here, come on. Obscure crown territory facts, bring it on. It was considered the last feudal state in Europe until 2008, when they reformed it, but yes, that will... You own the island, therefore you own the people. Yeah, pretty much. Oh, please say they had a Communist revolution. I know they didn't but, you know? - The horses. - A horsey uprising! 'The Reform', it's referred to... That sounds more ominous than it ought t'be, really, doesn't it? 'The Reform.' It is all capitalised. And if you didn't like the idea, would that be Sark snark? Jesus. Yes? No, it's sark-asm. When you're negative about it. Oh, guys, that deserved more, sark-asm, it really did. There are a lot of old laws still in place. They didn't have divorce until 2003. Was it separation of bed and table? I don't know what that is. That is the way you could organise a form of divorce pre-divorce being allowed. You were allowed to live apart by the church courts. Mensa et thoro. Oh yeah, come on, it's all in here somewhere! I mean, I'm... Because you've just basically told me the entire first paragraph of a completely different Wikipedia article I haven't loaded. So, yes. Third time in three shows, by the way. But how can you now get divorced on Sark? You can murder the other person. Not technically a divorce. I reckon that was always an option, you know, mate. Oh! Leave. Get divorced, come back. Yes. You can now get divorced in Guernsey and come back to Sark. “Those liberal Guernsey b******s,” they probably think. Having been out on islands like that, when I was on holidays a few years ago I went out to one of the Hebridean islands. I went to Coll, which is a similar kind of thing, very small island. They have a very slightly larger neighbour, Tiree, who they see as being stuck up, because A, they have the Co-op, and B, they have the policeman. And what happens is when the policeman gets on the boat to come over, they phone up the island, and everyone hides their non-registered cars and stuff until the policeman has left. And now you've just ratted all of them out. Yeah! Get over there, policeman from Tiree, come on! But by the time he's got there, they'll have hidden them again. Hidden the cars, yes. Somewhere on that island, the phone's just... “Oh, we said not to tell anyone!” “Gary, we told you...!” We briefly mentioned the economy, what is Sark's economy driven by? Horses! Sarcasm. Tourism. Yes, and you also said that earlier, financial services. Eh, kids? It has... a low amount of tax, let's say that. How long do you have to live there? It's got to be over a number of years, probably. I'm guessing owning a tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of a bit of land counts as living there. Three months in a tax year. Okay, fair enough. If you're there for 91 days, you're good. You're a resident, you get their tax laws if you want them. Don't do this, I'm really crap at tax stuff. Do they have to be... I'm rapidly figuring out if I can do this, the answer is almost certainly no, but I'm thick as mince. Don't let me near this. Just a sec. This means all your tax savings could be spent on getting a hovercraft there, and then you could get a hovercraft there, and that would be fun, because it's a hovercraft. It is quite a long way away. Tom, Tom, Tom, please can I have a go on a hovercraft? What we're saying is we all want a go on a hovercraft. And I think I can arrange that, but... Ooh! Smash cut to... I'm more worried about Matt's tax advice system here, which is - “Yes, we can save you money for a hovercraft.” - Hovercraft, hovercraft, hovercraft. Like, it's not the worst tax advice I've ever heard, but… If we did, we could do a show on a hovercraft, it would be 'on air', because it's… It's a golf clap. It's a golf clap. It's a good four. I'm not biscuiting that. The legal system on Sark also has something called... er, I'm going to try and pronounce French again here, which is never great. Oh great. The Clameur de haro. Clammy arrows? Is that along the lines of the hue and cry for a criminal, or something like that? Oh, it's connected to hue and cry. I'll absolutely give you a point for that. Yes, for apprehending a felon, or something like that, no? Ah, not in this case, but what is the hue and cry? Hue and cry is an ancient thing where in a community you would be responsible for raising the hue and cry if someone had committed a crime and was passing through your community. It's, “All pile on,” basically, in a legal term. Right, so it's like the law, but on a small island where the law operates like American football. This is not on Sark. I should point out for a hue and cry, all able-bodied men, upon hearing the shouts, were obliged to assist. Oh, that sounds like so much fun. This is the hue and cry, though, this is not Clameur de haro. A-r-r-o-w? No, h-a-r-o. Oh. This is kind of the opposite. This is not going to catch someone, this is to stop someone. Ignore someone. I was going to say, professionally ignoring crimes. Wait, tax haven! “Hovercraft, what hovercraft?” “It's disguised as a barn, officer!” No, it's disguised as a load of money. Is that a formal way of saying, “Geroff my land!”? Yeah, go on. It's not, “Get off my land,” but yes, it is a formal Thing that you Do. This is annoying me, because I half know this. It's some kind of judicial process where you effectively bring someone in front of the king to adjudge on a land case or something like that, isn't it? It is, it's a very specific process. The procedure is performed on one's knees. Steady everyone. Before at least two witnesses, in the presence of the wrongdoer, and in the location of the offence. All right? The Criant, the person complaining, with his hand in the air must call out, “Hear me, hear me, hear me. “Come to my aid, my prince, for someone does me wrong.” - Yes. - That's a hell of a safe word. Try speaking that through the orange, yeah! Followed by reciting what well-known thing in French? Lord's prayer. Yes, absolutely right. It's been done recently, this. - Yes it has. - This is why I've heard of it, it's because it's in some kind of land dispute, and it's something like a hedge or a garage or something like that, and the guy is basically on the verge of losing the case, and as one final, basically, legal dick move just dropped to his knees and did that. And everyone went, “Oh, s***, that's still enforced.” That kind of thing. What happens after the Lord's prayer is recited? What does the person they are challenging need to do? Based on what's already gone before, presumably adopt a backwards crab position, walk in a circle on a full moon, but any other time of the year, you have to go completely rectilinear, and shout something, yeah, let's go with Latin. It is significantly simpler than that. Most things are! There are people in this room with doctoral theses that were easier to complete than that. Do they just go, “Right”? Yes, that's basically it.
