    Show Your Solidarity With Sensible Swiss! 

    The Leftal, sorry The Local has, apparently in all seriousness, started stirring up the ‘issue’ of giving aliens the right to vote in Switzerland’s elections.



    I really don’t understand how anyone can be so completely cosmopolitanised to the extent they can conclude that non-nationals should be granted such a privilege!




    For any foreigner even to seek to meddle in any other nation’s affairs is an outrageously arrogant intrusion.

    The Leftal has kindly given its readers a quiz/poll on the subject, so I pass it on to my readers – the effrontery of one question…..

    One in four residents of Switzerland can’t vote. Do you think this restriction reflects the Swiss mentality?

    – sums up the offensive globalist mind-set…



    …as if there’s anything amiss about any Swiss who might take exception to resident sticky-beaks interfering in Swiss elections!

    So I have provided the link for you to join in and hoffentlich skew the results away from The Leftal’s preferred outcome!

      I like this idea, having a little bit of fun at the Left media’s expense.
      They really have a cheek, suggesting that it’s the Swiss mentality that needs to be examined!
      I would say it’s the Left’s own globalist mental kink that they should have straightened out.
      Why would Switzerland let foreigners vote?
      How many foreign countries let Swiss people vote in their elections?

      This consultation for is a typical ‘Delphi technique’ Common purpose loaded questionnaire. The answers have to be just ambiguous, there is no facility to say NO vote for Foreigners, as if it is a done deal that they WILL vote so what is your opinion of that.

    Swiss Feds Subverting Democracy! 

    There’s a rank smell coming out of those Alpine valleys, and it’s not some goat-cheese that’s gone off.

    It’s subversion, and brazen subversion at that, the Swiss Federal Council showing contempt for the country’s democratic practices and principles, trying to ‘take the wind out of the sails of a popular initiative calling for a nationwide burqa ban.’

    Patriots in Switzerland are up in arms over these arrogant elitists, because the duty of that Council is to implement a popular initiative which got significantly more than the 100,000 signatures needed to require a nationwide referendum on the issue.


    The in-crowd in Berne the Swiss ‘has rejected the initiative!’

    The political establishment has dredged up a counterproposal, which was first mooted in late 2017 and is now up for consultation.

    In a statement on that consultation process published on Wednesday, the Federal Council said it was “aware that covering the face can be problematic”. 


    Problematic?’ Putting it mildly!


    But the Council said it wanted “targeted action instead of a general ban on face coverings”.

    In its statement, the government criticised the popular initiative for a nationwide burqa ban by saying it would see federal authorities overstepping their powers and entering into an area that was traditionally a matter for individual cantons.

    But they added a few revealing comments to that defence of their antics, such as the feeble assertion that ‘Switzerland is a liberal society and the introduction of such a ban goes against that.’

    Au contraire!


    Switzerland, some Swiss might suggest, is a civilised European society!

    Many, if not most, people, there as in much of Europe, have little time for ‘liberal’ nonsense, and cannot see how any coherent case can be made that masked primitives, or indeed  masked antifa red nazis, have some inexplicable ‘right’ to walk the streets alarming decent citizens.

    Good people are speaking up…Image result for walter wobmann svp

    …like Walter Wobmann, an MP for the patriot party, the SVP ( Swiss People’s Party) – he’s rightly denounced the plotters as ‘shameful’ and ‘slammed the Swiss government for failing to take account of the fact that the popular initiative would also address the problem of violent demonstrators and football hooligans who covered their faces.’

    Good point! Red Nazi Antifa should certainly be included!

    “In our culture, you show your face. The fact that you do this in front of the authorities is nothing new,” he said. https://www.thelocal.ch/20180628/swiss-government-outlines-counterproposal-to-burqa-ban,

      The Council thinks it is our master not our servant. Thatis not what is in our constitution.
      Also we are not a liberal country. We are mostly conservative.

    “It Ain’t Me, Babe!” Liar Juncker Blames Smart Swiss! 

    “…I have always noticed on holidays that when I met Swiss people, they have dim view of me….”




    “I think the Swiss government and the Swiss media have projected an image of me that in no way corresponds with reality…”

    Poor Liar Juncker, who let slip years ago that he lies without conscience. He was this week talking about on-going talks with the Swiss Government and blaming them for everything.

    The Swiss, of course, must be anathema to Brussels and all its authoritarian denizens, because of their democratic constitution. Citizens there have the right to hold their leaders to account, by referenda.

    What must Liar Juncker think of that?


    Well, he’s told us!

    PS – Speaking of liars, however, that Luxemburg louse has no monopoly on mendacity…

    Theresa May and Michel Barnier fooled British public to hide ‘REAL’ £90billion Brexit bill, EU chiefs claim

    Negotiators allegedly performed ‘maths acrobatics’ to produce a total amount that is less than half the true total – so as not to undermine the PM’s authority.


    … or so it seems. according to that link provided by Brexit At Noon.

      Keep pounding away at her, Ross.
      She has done more damage by her abdication of leadership during this Brexit era than we can at the present time calculate.
      She’s a disgrace to the office of Prime Minister..

      I’m surprised Juncker was sober enough to notice what the Swiss said.

    NB Team Brexit! Brussels’ Swiss Lackeys War Down Democracy! 

    I try not to write at immense length, although if you go back to my early blogging days, you’ll see I used to succumb frequently to that temptation.


    However, this article from Spiked.com will give you a good Sunday morning read, which many Brits, if I remember right, DO enjoy very much, in between munching on buttery toast and slurps of coffee.

    Even in Switzerland, the EU erodes democracy
    How Swiss leaders use the EU to weaken popular sovereignty.

    It’s common for Brexiteers to single out Switzerland as the most democratic country in Europe…



    …and how the UK could learn from its position vis-a-vis the EUSSR.

    But that Swiss democracy would be overnight erased  were it ever foolish enough to  surrender its sovereignty to the Brussels Evil Empire.

    And worse, by legislative pandering to the Euro-Commissars, the parliament in Berne is selling out their nation’s heritage of self-determination.



    Liar Juncker was actually telling the truth when he warned EUSSR-ruled nation-states not to think for one moment that they had any right to determine their own futures.



    The Spiked piece gives an interesting perspective on the Swiss situation – enjoy reading it if you will.

      It’s so wrong how these cheap politicians are prepared to give up Switzerland’s freedoms.
      A lot of our states have direct democracy-referendum systems and citizen initiatives too, but the American courts have taken aim at democratic control and told us very loudly that they are not on the side of the American people.

      The Founding Fathers would turn in their graves over the way the Supreme Court imposed ‘gay’ marriage. That ruling showed us all how fragile our democracy is.

      We can only hope and pray that Donald Trump gets the chance to replace a few more of the worst judges there. .

    What Next? A DUP/UKIP Merger? 

    An interesting article in a part of the media I’ve not heard of before, called the ‘Observer,’ though it doesn’t seem to be that more well-known and horrendously ultra-liberal thing ‘The Observer!’

    I won’t go through all the writer of the article, Andre Walker, says, since you can read it for yourselves quite easily here –


    A Deal to Save Brexit: Nigel Farage Should Take UKIP Into DUP Merger



    Many years ago, I mooted a UK-wide Unionist Party, though in those days the base I foresaw for this development was what’s now the almost defunct Ulster Unionist Party.

    Mr. Walker realistically recognises how the times have a-changed, the UUP replaced as Ulster Brits’ spokes-party by the Democratic Unionists.

    He proposes that UKIP and DUP coalesce into one nationwide party!

    His proposed name, the United Kingdom Party, is good enough to be going on with.

    But the main thrust of his argument – that there is more to political life than Brexit – cannot be gainsaid.

    It’s a reasonable conclusion from recent events that while most Brits are glad to be on the way to self-government again, that very fact led voters to skip UKIP as a necessary choice – why vote for something we have already, by democratic referendum, achieved?

    That ‘achievement’ is of course in jeopardy, because the big parties simply cannot be trusted.  But many, if not most people, still plainly find it hard to grasp that the British political elite would stoop to thus damning democracy.



    Wishful thinking is a dodgy basis for putting a cross on one’s ballot paper.

    What’s needed is a powerful political bloc, with a secure popular base, albeit a limited, to start with, geographical base.

    What is also needed is a firm embrace of traditional British values, those rejected by the LabLibCon clique…



    …and a firm commitment to let Brits make direct decisions on the restoration of a way of life on the destruction of which they were never consulted.

    Swiss-style democracy, popular vote, not handed down by a condescending elite, but ON DEMAND, if a given percentage of voters require it.



    Thus the repeated refusal by arrogant parliaments to hold referenda on capital punishment, Cameron’s contemptuous dismissal of calls for popular consultation on so-called ‘gay’ so-called ‘rights,’ and the indifference of the in-crowd to public indignation over failure to deport unwanted aliens…



    …ALL of these issues would be subject to the highest court!

    Not the stuck-up sticky-beaks in Strasbourg…



    ….but the court of People Power, the verdict delivered via the ballot-box.

    I know I have a lot of UKIP supporters among my UK readers. I’d be interested to learn that they think.

      No objections from me.
      DUP would get a big boost if they had a mainland branch.
      The trouble is that UKIP might just see DUP as their Ulster branch.
      There needs to be a canny approach to this idea.


    • Tommy Riddell 21:11 on June 14, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      Unity is strength. The bigger the party the better. Its just common good sense to get together with everyone who agree on the big issues.
      The problem might be some many egos in Ukip.
      Nigel could do it.


    • Penny 21:16 on June 14, 2017 Permalink | Reply

      I think it would be a tremendous idea.
      Not so sure about the name though, why not call it a more inspiring name, like the British Peoples Party?

      All for it, mate.
      What I do NOT understand is why those Scotch On The Rocks and Welsh Nats can be so leftwing and keen on illegal immigrants and multiculti rubbish. You would expect nationalists of any kind to work together.

      If they can work it out, yes, Ross, it could make a big difference.
      I read that all the Ulster-haters in Westminster are saying May must not make a deal with unionists because she has to be an honest broker between us and the IRA.
      Makes you sick, that Perfidious Albion mentality. A lot of people here in Ulster just cannot understand why the English love to kick their friends in the teeth.
