I confused Kamarate with Musichick in post 134. Sorry about that.

Re: Why England has got nothing on Switzerland!

Dear swisscheese1

My GF is German and she'd agree with you on the overweight totty, the teenage mums congregated in the high street cafes with the prams backed out into the road, the summer clothes in winter i.e. leggings.

But after moving to CH she really misses the simplicity of it all. Registering for National Insurance for example is free and easy, (Swiss equivalent pay 125 chf at the gemeinde and they even get the wrong permit!).

Popping out for a pizza 2.99 (Swiss equivalent 20 ch!)

The NHS (Swiss equivalent sh1t loads!)

5 custard filled donuts for 69p in the real Co-Op (Swiss equivalent there isn't one but it too would be sh1t loads)

I had that feeling. But I, in a very discriminatory fashion, associate girls with some level of finesse and good manners, so found OP's posts confusing.
You obviously have never been to England

I think the problem is that they are poor students. A swiss miss can smell the lack of funds from a valley away

I knew it---those noses were definitely specifically designed for something practical!

"Advice" is the noun.

I want to give you a piece of advice.

I advise you to be more tactful in your description of female populations of entire nations!

For example.

Y´all know what? Gonna open a fish and chip shop in Basel, steak and kidney puds, a whole tribe of pies, mushy peas, the works, have been looking at (used) ranges to import. Could be fun.

Women- England is one big national park full of whales and penguins. God almighty initially I thought that all the ladies were pregnant but my colleague informed me that they were fat and not pregnant. No wonder English find Swiss girls hard to pull as women in England are just too easy. Show them a packet of Walkers crisps and they will jump into bed with you.
Possibly Newcastle ?

English language- In North England they don't even speak English but mumble some horrible accent that they pass for English.
Pretty sure it's Newcastle.

Filthy- Rubbish all over the streets. Not even talking about the prego teenagers. It's actually filthy and like a third world country. In a third world country I could blame lack of education but what can I blame in England? Yes the English.
Newcastle, right?

Seriously, I started to reply before reading the last paragraph so declare myself a genius and you a fine judge of human nature.

That bit about the queen is bollocks though .

Re: Why England has got nothing on Switzerland!

To Swiss-Cheese, I compliment you on writing excellent English. Not many people here can write good German, and together with such a large local vocabulary. Well done! (What a creep I am !)

So I take it that's not a picture of YOU in your avatar? I ask because I don't see the difference in having your actual photo as your avatar and posting one in a forum.
