Guernsey has had the right to govern itself, make its own laws and levy its own taxes since the time of King John. It intends to keep things that way, no matter what political faction is in power at Westminster. Constitutionally, it stands on firm ground and these rights have been regularly confirmed by the Crown.
The States of Guernsey is the parliament of the island of Guernsey and is officially called the States of Deliberation, which is made up of 45 People’s Deputies who are elected every four years. The Bailiff presides over the States.
