After 1330 pages and 27,000 posts (is this a record for EF?) on this thread perhaps it is a good idea to archive it. The next chapter should be 'Transition' for at least 11 months.
I only have 800 pages.
The number of pages can vary as you can set it to one of a number of options in the settings.

No, it's an expensive part of Rhône-Alpes, prices like in Z.H. although less than half of price of Verbier.
A quick glance shows Verbier and Zurich prices to be fairly similar, oder?

1m gets you in the region of 80-100m2 in Verbier and outskirts of Zurich go for similar. Greencity on the very limits of Zurich city want a touch over 1m for 61m2

That's a lot of money for such a dreadful location.

I'm not sure it is as bad as it first looks. Very green area (duhh!) with great transport links to Zurich - about 10 mins to the HB with very regular trains (10 mins rush hour, 20 other times).

I have a couple of friends who bought there and are very happy - prices have rocketed down there, presumably for the reasons above.

Haha, are you shopping in the £15m range?

Those are clearly outliers - plenty of places in Zurich to fetch that silly money too

It always looks wet and dark to me there, and the highway around and the train through it - but it might be different when you live in it.

Just remembered something about not being interested in cars and that you'd never spent more than £1000 on one.

I have never owned a new car & have always spent more than £1000. The cars we own are all either 2009/2010 first registered. I prefer to invest in equities than depreciating assets.

I'm sure you wrote that you'd never paid more than £1000 for a car. My memory must be playing tricks on me.

Well I have previously admitted to owning a 1983 Porsche 911, bought in CH with just 29000 km. You are confusing me with one of your leftie friends

Please advise Her Majesty that the European Union flags will continue to fly over Holyrood alongside

Childish.

But we could send them a Swiss flag anytime, if they just like colourfull pieces of cloth flying in the wind.
In case of a hissy fit they can even burn it. a) it's allowed and b) we send them a polyester one (could cause bad burn injuries though).

Brexit: What is the transition period?

Boris Johnson could decide to extend the transition period (as long as the EU also agreed to it). Under the terms of the withdrawal agreement, the transition period is allowed to be extended by 12 or 24 months.


So the saga could continue for another three years almost? Almost 7 years in total.

This thread is barely at the half-way point...
