Re: Switzerland loses “safest country” accolade

Hmm how can they make an article like that and not answer the most essential question.. What country has then taken the "safest country in the world" title?

How annoying.

Clearly its France. Why rob poor French people when you can simply cross the border and earn some CHF.

Re: Switzerland loses “safest country” accolade

oh clearly, its gotta be England! Where else can you safely walk across a dark suburb at night carrying your newly acquired 1500 inch plasma TV and the young people hanging around would not even consider harming you but instead ask where you acquired these wonderful new good and go to the nearest shop and help you carry your belongings!

The SVP must be rubbing their hands with glee. The newspaper article supports their many "Auslander" initiatives.

What countries, you mean!!!!



Allow me and my bad German translation



Quote:
International Comparison
• In 1972 and again in 1988, Switzerland's crime rate was the lowest in Europe.

• Since then, Switzerland has "caught up" with the rest of the pack.

• In terms of burglaries and assaults/threats, Switzerland has reached the EU average (data is for 1995-2005, But according to police data the normal trend has been decreasing since then).

• Switzerland now exceeds about half the European countries.

• We must therefore abandon the myth of Switzerland as "the safest country in the world."

Just to set this one clear - that IS the police from here, just the catholic members of it, doing their 2-year stint protecting the pope. So clearly, the must have their colourful Ratzinger-Pijamas in the back of their wardrobes here somewhere. All just a matter of getting them out for the next WEF in Davos or 1st May demonstrations...

Are prostitutes no longer considered women? If they find out they will stop giving their usual "vatican discount" to the clergy.
