“Bazza” is an import to Jersey from the East End of London. No-one is quite sure how he ended up on the island. Some people say that he was headed to Calais to stock up on cheap booze but got on the wrong ferry. Once he learned of the relaxed way of life on the island and that he didn't have to go any further for cheap alcohol, he claimed Jersey was akin to Paradise and never left.
