Re: Why I HATE Switzerland.

DaveA, Interesting idea to write a letter to Migros. I've written to them before, but not about Sunday trading. The thing is, shops like Migros would LOVE to extend their trading hours, but they are limited by the law. Do you think they aren't already lobbying? In a direct democracy it's the people that have to be lobbied, not Migros. It's all about picking your battles: some things can be changed by our own actions (I've been a prolific letter writer in the past), but other things can't. Sure I could start to collect signatures to force a vote on the issue, but as a non-citizen I'm not allowed. So like I said before - maybe I should pack my bags. Believe me - if there were something concrete and useful I could do on that issue I WOULD!
