Swiss Border Controls
I suppose that is motivated by the want for stricter immigration controls. Though it would give jobs back for border patrols... I'm guessing the business lobby (or equivalent bodies) were mainly dominant in pushing for joining…

Well yes, I can see it's a slowdown of increase, but if you buy now, you need to consider "what's going next". And yes with current figures it's only slowdown of increase and the "future" is just speculations. Nonetheless the context…

Another self employed question!
I don't think 'massage ' is the problem. The people who work in those offices are very 'SWISS' & complicated. I guess the OP can go back once a significant amount of work has been done if they can be bothered. It's about 3500 CHF when…
