Proud Swiss hits back at swipe in Euro guide

7 Days in Dubai - - PUZZLES -

I was super ex­cited to read through your Es­sen­tial Guide to the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships book­let. That is un­til I read your blurb about Switzer­land: “like Brus­sels, a bit char­ac­ter­less but well or­gan­ised”. First off, Brus­sels is a very vi­brant city, but most im­por­tantly Switzer­land and its peo­ple have loads of char­ac­ter. I could go on and ex­plain, but what is the point, see­ing you have al­ready passed judg­ment. HOW­EVER, my point, is that if you don’t have any­thing pos­i­tive to say about a coun­try, it’s peo­ple, their cul­ture etc... then don’t say any­thing at all. My daugh­ter was quite up­set when she read your com­ment about her coun­try! Some might even call it bul­ly­ing! What a great ex­am­ple you are for our chil­dren... or NOT! Shame on you!.

EDITOR’S RE­SPONSE: We’re sorry if this of­fended any­body, that wasn’t our in­ten­tion. We were ac­tu­ally re­fer­ring to the foot­ball team and their style of play, not a coun­try’s cit­i­zens. Apostrophiser Dubai
