Naturalisation and the überprivileged youth of Geneva

http://www.rts.ch/play/tv/mise-au-po...hes?id=6865383


An interesting documentary (in French) in 3 sections: I particularly enjoyed the second section about "les faiseurs de suisses", i.e. the civil servants who will decide on whether to grant or not Swiss citizenship ("funny" how some people having lived for 15 years in CH cannot name a celebration that takes place everywhere in August!). I thought they were a lot more accommodating in Geneva than in Fribourg.


The third section is about some ultra privileged youth in Geneva who does not hesitate to spend 8000 CHF in one evening on Champagne...and by the sound of it, more often than not! And they don't want to be judged as spoilt brats!! Too late!
