He turned 81 on Monday – SVP superfather Christoph Blocher (congratulations!). On the occasion of this holiday, the old Federal Council certainly had many well-wishers. Including the Freiheitstrychler – he even received them at home.
In any case, the opponents of the measures posted pictures of the memorable occasion on their Telegram chat. Blocher, who – sometimes with, sometimes without his wife Silvia – poses with the Trychlers in front of the Zurich lake backdrop. And even in their shirts!
SVP Federal Council provokes: Ueli Maurer in the shirt of the freedom drychler(00:56)
Blocher copied bricklayer
Blocher is doing the same as Federal Councilor Ueli Maurer (70), who a few weeks ago also put on the Corona Trychler’s robe at an SVP event and posed with it.
That brought the SVP finance minister quite a bit of headlines and trouble for the Federal Council. Federal President Guy Parmelin (61) had to explain this in parliament – and Maurer’s appearance will also be a topic at the next Von Wattenwyl talks, at which the state government meets with the Federal Council parties.

The fact that Blocher also poses with the Freiheitstrychlers is not without a certain irony: The SVP doyen is vaccinated (like Maurer) and also called on his supporters to take this step.
But just like Maurer, Blocher is only interested in something more than protecting his health: provoking. Because in the middle of the voting battle for the Covid law, the old Federal Council knows exactly what his appearance will do.
Unlike Maurer, however, Blocher has no excuse: that he did not know what kind of camisole the item of clothing was. (sf / sac)
