    Default Does the UK desire be like Switzerland after Brexit?

    Low taxes, high prices, freedom to manoeuvre with big infrastructure projects like their recently completed longest tunnel in the world?
    London : 'we're holding a referendum to leave the Eureopean union
    EU: 'OK'
    Scotland: 'we're holding a referendum to leave the UK union'
    London: ' Oh no you're not'.

    I think so. Switzerland enjoys a debt to GDP of 34%. Meanwhile in Wrexit land it's a horrific 90%. A number that'll only increase surely when the cost of leaving the EU is included.

    I don't think so.

    I would like to see Switzerland without banks with anonymous accounts from terrorists, tax evasion and money laundry.
    Don't argue with idiots. They'll drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    They're getting there:

    OECD deal means 'end of Swiss banking secrecy' - The Local
    European Commission - PRESS RELEASES - Press release - Fighting tax evasion: EU and Switzerland sign historic tax transparency agreement

    But this could cause problems as then the money is just being transferred to trusts primarily in the UK and US which are well known ways of hiding such funds: Le Matin, l'actualité en direct: Suisse, sports, people, faits divers, politique, économie, techno, auto
    If people like Rupert Murdoch, Nigel Farage, George Galloway, Nick Griffin and Marine Le Pen want Britain to leave the EU. Where does that put you?
