Hello Simon,

my problem is solved. I have found another Kanton granting me temporary Swiss number plates for the transfer.

Well, the result of the recent referendum concerning the minaret came really as a surprise to many people. But recently there have been quite a few criminal issues involving Muslim youths and that Libya holds two Swiss business men since month like hostages and no charged them with almost two years of prison under really dubious pretexts did not help for the referendum either.

Switzerland exists for more than 1.000 years, now, and knows more than a little bit about democracy.

A French sentence says: "meunier est maître chez lui" (miller is his own lord at home).

Swiss voted. Period.

Fortunatelly for them, they are not members of EU, and they can expect that their authorities will not make them vote again because the 1st vote was "wrong"; like we, Europeans, did, with the EU constitution.

(And in some countries you are not allowed to even be a jew or practice an other religion than the one which is compulsory. We shall keep buying oil from them, and they will keep putting their money in Switzerland.)

For instance my own religion, a very old one, oblige me to do human sacrifices (preferably children), but I can't practice it in my own country, and in many countries, like Switzerland.
I respect that.

I agree with your sentiments that at the end of the day one must respect the rules of a nation, or if possible vote with one's feet and go elsewhere. Tolerance is a fine thing, without which, there would be a lot more conflict than there already is.

And returning to cars and the EU, even being in the EU the few British manufacturers in the UK still have trouble exporting some of their fine wares to other EU countries. Witness such vehicles as Caterham, Radical & Atom.
