    I wish I could offer some better suggestions. Perhaps requiring prime-time, on-air retractions for inaccuracies from the media would work. I don't think we can expect any improvement in their standards! As for the political opposition... we have the same problem with our adversarial legal system. Everyone is trying to win rather than get the best result.

    It's just a guess really... based on what I see here. Surely... surely... the Swiss doesn't idolise their equivalent of rugby players, drinking, recreational drugs and benefit fraud as much as we do here!
