Re: British people are leaving Switzerland due to EU citizens taking priority

Why doesn’t OP just make some correct choices in life and career and get Swiss citizenship? I did that, so have freedom of movement in EU/EEA. I’m alright, Jack. I have a good laugh at the Brectums.

I can get PG tips from any Asia shop in Germany, and indeed our local Edeka has Yorkshire tea.
But HP sauce is only a fond memory and indeed there is a HP sauce crisis here in the Fatherland, don´t know about the situation in CH.
Edeka sells HP Sauce for 2.49 EUR... its a franchise system, so not every market might stock it. Just ask and they probably get it for you...

Our local one used to sell it, but they stopped. They also stopped stocking Heinz Beans.

I now find Heinz to be too sweet and the sauce quite thin. Much prefer the Coop or Migros own brand.

It's called comfort food, every culture has their favourite chocolate for instance, what is crap for you is sublime for somebody else

Better than the original! I wonder how many cats were test-strangled before “slide guitar” hit the right pitch

Indeed, proof that the single most important driver for the expansion of the British empire was the search for better food.

Re: British people are leaving Switzerland due to EU citizens taking priority

? Survival of the fittest or most fitting ?


Leaving is always the best way out if things and prospects in your next stop promise to work out or be better. Otherwise stay put and enjoy the relative standards and thrills...
