    I think it depends on whether it includes the bribe for the border guards inspecting the truck you and your entire family are in when you arrive at Schaffhausen.

    Are you having a laugh?

    So in other words you don't want people to leave the country as if their passport was out of date it would cost the effectively €2k to go on holidays (€1k for the passport and €1k for price of holiday including spending money) or over €2500 if they had to bring a child....Imagine people who were emmigrating, the might only have €1k leaving and you want to take it off them before they go if they had to renew their passport

    To me this is madness

    Probably just enough people would be stupid enough to pay it to cover the cost of the lawyers for the constitutional challenge.

    Splendid idea. Got any more?

    Why so cheap... in the 80's the FF's used to sell them for £50000.

    Why Schaffhausen? Is that a hostel for sheeple?

    Think about it before you post these daft ideas.
