Re: Are the swiss racist?

Reading the AZ(Aargausiche Zeitung) this morning I got a little hot under the collar with their page 3. This was not like an English page 3 at all so that was not the reason! (slap)

They had a big section on Swiss Asylum seekers - ie those poor people who find themselves desperate for help. It showed a graphic with the development of applications and how Mr Blocher had managed to reduce dramatically the number of applications. This graphic had green for less applications and red for more kind of indicating their belief that there should be as few applications as possible

It does worry me that the Swiss have this kind of attitude to thes sorts of people but I wonder(worry) if this is not the case in every other country and I am a bit of a freak!

The UK feels the same - often simply because the country <sic> is targetted by asylum seekers who travel through other EU states and don't seek aslyum there.

Surely if you're seeking asylum, anything's better?

My POV is that if you migrate and add value, you're fine. That is hopefully how others perceive me.
