Re: SVP self-determination initiative

Yes, of course.

Same as most everybody around here.

Probably won't pass up north, though, as they have all become a bunch of cheese-eating surrender monkeys.

It is worthless without the link to basic information.

Re: SVP self-determination initiative

The Swiss judge is "Helen Keller".

The jokes write themselves. Except in her case of course...

Re: SVP self-determination initiative

It cannot be good then ...

Conclusion
The Self-Determination Initiative is an attack on the Swiss legal system. The effects of it on the Swiss legal system would be extremely serious, since the initiative would endanger individual basic rights, legal certainty, stability and prosperity in Switzerland for decades to come. The possible chaos resulting from it can be seen in the present problems connected to Brexit. But unlike the UK, Switzerland would not terminate agreements with just one partner ó all agreements with all countries would be in danger.

Yes, I really had to check out if that was a joke when I saw that the other day.

Then again, justice is blind (or so they say)

Re: SVP self-determination initiative

You know you could have at least sought to present the topic without bias ... as in presenting links that are for and against the initiative.

The official initiative website:
- https://www.selbstbestimmungsinitiative.ch/

Sites against the initiative:
- https://www.selbstbestimmungsinitiativenein.ch/de
- https://www.sbi-nein.ch/
