Brecqhou | Islet in in the English Channel, part of the United Kingdom but under the jurisdiction of the nearby island of Sark. ‘Sir Frederick and Sir David Barclay, billionaire twins, live in a castle on Brecqhou. The brothers have hoovered up large chunks of Sark, buying three of the island’s six hotels and opening a string of businesses. After the inaugural elections failed to return most of their preferred candidates, a representative of the Barclays briefly suspended their businesses in Sark,’ (‘Feudal feuds’, The Economist, 15th December 2018, p32).
