Boris Johnson And The Gnomes of Zurich.

Forget about Dave Cam and the Archbish Of Cant, if it's a New Years pronouncement you're looking for Boris Johnson is the boy. Having spent a lot of time warning against the possible mass exodus of bankers to Zurich if so much as a finger is laid on their rightful bonuses, Boris has now had to admit that this threatened migration has not happened. You could be forgiven for thinking that this is due to the financial sector still rolling in it but Boris reckons it should, "come as no surprise to anyone who has had to spend a night in Zurich". Oh! Boris. You are a wag. Such laughs.
Actually I spent a night in Zurich last year and it was not that bad. I stayed at the unusual Hotel Du Theatre in the old town and just yards from the cable car that climbs up to a mountain suburb. There seemed to be a lively gay scene and a noticeable alternative/punk presence. I also seem to remember that a litre of beer and the Swiss equivalent of sausage and bubble almost cost a bankers bonus-or a FIFA backhander eh Boris?.
