I've heard that the British Islands off of the French coast, which include Jersey and others, require special permission from the British government to go to. Is that just for moving there to live, visiting there or not true at all?

St Kilda used to be inhabited, but I think the last of the population was evacuated in the 1930's. Its just full of feral sheep now.

They're about 30 miles west of Cornwall. Apparently, as recently as Roman times they were all one island, but they're slowly sinking into the sea

Actually, that beach pic of Cornwall is amazing!! Are you sure that isn't Cornwall, Bermuda or Cornwall, Jamaica? That Gulf Stream really warms up the UK!

The Channel Islands aren't part of the United Kingdom (like the Isle of Man too). Anyone can visit but you need permission from the government of Jersey, Guernsey or wherever (not the British Government) to live there permanently. They tend to only give residence to rich people as they are a tax haven for people who don't want to pay their fair share to the upkeep of the country.

They annoy me a bit, they have the protection of our defence forces and access to our market economically but they don't pay their way, in fact they actively try to take money from the British treasury by attracting millionaires away from the country and being a centre for money laundering.
