Re: Will Switzerland soon be filled with fences?

Fences are to keep the sheep in. No. 8 wire is for the neighbours

Wouldn't be hard to do, most od the border with Italy is water or mountains, and there is still a lot of fencing left from the pre-Schengen days.

Also, pretty much everyone in Ticino would be in favor, it's just the scum in Bern who would be opposed.

Tom
At least we would have real problems building it

When I reached the "scum of Bern" bit I half expected you to suggest to build the wall before Ticino instead of after.

They have also electrical fences to keep the trespassers out. Really makes your hair stand on end

They're to keep the cows in. An electric fence is no deterrent to a trespasser with two hands and the ability to keep his tongue in his mouth.

Given the alleged amount of stolen goods in bank vaults, it seems it already is.
