Re: 200 Brits Escape from Verbier

Oh look how organized Brits can be! They should all go into politics, all 200 of them.

Funny. An other headline asks "Is there a finder's reward for finding a Verbier-Brit?".
I thought Euro-tunnel and ferries are also closed? So they're gonna swim home? I think Tom was on to something re refugee boats after all. But probably they're just skiing in France now.
Hard to believe, hotel staff did not notice movement of 200 people who were not supposed to be seen anywhere but on their balconies.

However, if they ran, it means they got a dine-n-dash case waiting for them here next year.
Ferries & Eurotunnel are in operation from France to UK

Can't access 20 Min due to ad. blocker- could you do a very short summary, please? Maybe they all walked up to Chamonix to go and stay with other Brits there
Apparently a Swiss school teacher who worked in the UK is the mastermind behind this, she lives near the border & is friends with the border guards. She invited them round on Boxing Day so the escape was easy
