Good riddance


The Swiss parliament has decided not to re-elect the most despicable politician, Christof Blocher.
I salute this courageous display of political dignity and integrity, which will bring many changes, at least in the way Switzerland will be seen from the outside AND sending a clear message that being racist, xenophobic, intolerant and plainly disrespectful is NOT what this country is about.

During his 4 years tenure as a federal counsillor (government minister), Mr Blocher has repeatedly ignored the country’s laws, traditions and elementary reserve high officials should abide to. Good riddance, asshole.
