Swiss politician gets giggles in parliament

Pin It


Parliament is a serious business – but not for this senior Swiss politician. Finance minister Hans-Rudolf Merz succumbed to fits of giggles during a recent speech. You wouldn’t expect many laughs to be found when discussing spiced meat imports. But the barely-comprehensible, bureaucratic jargon he had to tackle got the better of his funnybone. His stand-up performance has won him hundreds of thousands of Youtube fans – and a round of applause from his colleagues.

    thumps up for politicians and other stars (such as Nadal or Federer) who realise world’s much more than a formal, no-mistake place.
    mistakes are sympathetic!

    hahaha! Import of swiss Bünderfleisch into switzerland xD that’s just ridiculus how can you import something that is only produced in the own country ^^

    @deveousdevil It discusses the import and export of meat products, but in an extremely bureaucratic jargon. “Bündnerfleisch” is a kind of dried beef very popular in Switzerland.
