Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The one comment I will make here, in regards to my perspective on the whole election campaign here: That the SVP have taken a page out of the US republican playbook...they have been aggressive, playing the race card and the fear card, trying to blame all problems on the Left (who for the most part have not defended themselves), and spending A LOT of money on media. Also very Berlusconi-esque, what with the promotion of Blocher as their savior. Its been pretty disgusting, actually.

It's up to the Swiss to prove the world wrong.

All my Swiss news comes from the Salon and from Euronews (they ran a number of items on the racist posters). Didn't see much in the Dutch press when I checked.
