In fact I took Swiss nationality when I was there. I am now based back in the UK for various reasons but I am disappointed by what has happened here in my absence. Crime, job uncertainty and general deterioration in values is immediately apparent when compared to Switzerland. Life is much less stressfull in CH, people are interested in you as person and friendly and the standard of living is much higher then the UK. I will be retiring back to Switzerland at the appropriate time you can be sure of that.

It cost him several grand for a total of less than two hours recovery and treatment....Moral: If you do decamp, get insurance.

I used to visit Switzerland regularly in one of my jobs and I was always struck by the contrast between the stunning scenery and the insularity of its people. No doubt others will comment that it is those mountains which have created that insularity, but - and here I'm going to be brutally honest - it is a very dull country and I would die of emotional starvation.

He can reduce a fiendishly difficult topic into a short simple sentence? 4 words to encompass a minefield. "Fancy living in Switzerland?" But then he goes and ruins it by taking over 150 words and still failing to answer the question.3 / 10 Michael, see me.For the record, the correct answer is 'YES'.

(speaking generally not just rich bankers)Also what if Germany stops supporting Switzland enjoying the benefits of being in Europe without being in the EU.

Didn't Peter Sellars live out that way? But £5 for a pint!

Instead, I'm an ordinary bloke, a physiotherapist. Taxes are significantly lower whilst public services are better, the schools are great and the healthcare is probably the best in the world.The air's fresher, the transport works and the people are friendlier. But it's not for everyone, you have to like the outdoors rather than the nightlife. Indeed, I'm not sure how many tycoons will move since there are fewer shops, auction houses and fancy restaurants.
