So funny, the Zurich politicians have it

Laughter is not evidence of a sense of Humor. Laughter is liberating, creates trust, is a sign of belonging. He who laughs together, shares similar values, indicates: "I understand." At the same time laugh, borders, create, and share a "we" and "your".

The councillors to demonstrate the Zurich Canton and Kantonsräte almost every Monday, if you are arguing in the city hall hours about new laws, excuse me, debate – on behalf of the voters, for the gallery, for the media. Once dry, langfädig and sometimes laughing out loud. For example, if EPP member of the Parliament Daniel Sommer talks about the nocturnal wild boar hunting, he interrupts his speech for a poem, a Jägerhut touches and a hunting horn blows, so that his vote, as he himself adds, a little glaubwu?rdiger, therefore, come. Then serenity prevails in the cantonal Parliament "".

"joy" will be noted in such cases, in each case in the log; so, according to the dictionary, through Laughter, or the like to the outside, becomes visible, at the end of a joyful, relaxed mood. The TA has analysed the logs of the last four years, automatically, according to the concept of "joy" due to addiction, and this 725-found in 83 percent of the evaluated sessions, the Parliament had to laugh a little.

MIC in Paris

Would be the member of the Parliament, a person, the reading of these many laughter shows magnificently, he would probably be a little clumsy Nerd with a Dose of self-irony, can be mean, word games are like the shock is finished and also under the waist line. In the Protocol, the Oh reads like this:", I, of the microphone of Paris is dropped. (Laughter. Hat meant the Foam on the microphone.) But you know that the CVP has a little trouble with the correct use of Parisians." Striking in this vote of CVP-member of the Parliament Jean-Philippe Pinto of the brackets are inserted by the Protocol guide, filled with Notes, which make the joy and the context in the first place to understand, even for outsiders. And so it continues: "(an allusion to the birth of an extramarital child of the former President of the CVP Switzerland, Christophe Darbellay.)"

if the President of the Council, and the President, provoke, Hans-Peter Amrein (SVP, 47 times), Markus Bischoff (AL, 32 times) and Esther Guyer (Green, 25 times) the most laughs. Heidi Baumann logged for nearly 20 years in the cantonal Parliament. She has written the majority of the over 13'000 analysed A4 pages. She puts the joy in brackets. The top space of the SVP-man Amrein surprised Baumann something. Spontaneously, she would have suspected unionists Bischoff on 1 and Esther Guyer also top placed. But Hans-Peter Amrein? Perhaps an indication of this has to do joy little with Humor.

Hans-Peter Amrein was chosen from TA four years ago for the weirdest bird of the Kantonsrats, he is games a push slingshot and a friend of the word, as here to the address of SP-a member of the Parliament, Ruedi Lais: "Dear "Rowdy" Lais (laughter) on the Velos have a strip to drive you decent." He benefited in the warriors, ranking of the Ratslinken that his Vote acknowledged, often with sardonic laughter. As recently, as he prepared after the electoral debacle of the SVP to a replica on a vote for a green choice winner: "Now you have just heard a fundamentalists and the policy to be pursued in the next four years seem to be in this Council (laughter). Yes, it is. I congratulate you on your electoral success, have to say, however, that the Zurich population was probably not aware of what this weekend (laughter)."

With irony points

The two group leaders Bischoff and Guyer, said Protocol handler Baumann, to be precise observer. You know the Council and the sore points of their colleagues, can make reference to you and points with irony. At Bischoff about the sounds like this: "But Mr Liebi, of the more than 50-year-old Banker, you know, you're not in this business, is unemployed because of an Eritrean asylum seekers waiting in front of the Bank and his Job would (laughter)." And Guyer makes use of, for example, in the debate about the easing of the Badeverbots in the Limmat on the wool hats appearance of the FDP in the election campaign kick-off last January funny: "Mr. Miller, this is not really a pity, that of all the sense of liberty supported this small joy. I imagine it to be very nice, if you swim with your blue hat on the Limmat down (laughter)."

Without prior knowledge, without the knowledge of this member of the Parliament-habitat and the Zurich political landscape, many of the jokes remain difficult to understand, they work within the group, to the sporadic observer, but difficult to access. Even in the situation Comedy it needs some help, "fortunately, certain problems always remain the same (laughter. The microphone works only after repeated Pressing the appropriate button.)", it says in the Protocol, as the CVP-councillor Silvia Steiner, the word takes. They triggered in the last four years, a total of 6 times laughter in the Council, the power rank 4 in the government ranking list. Behind her, Carmen Walker Späh (FDP, 4 times), Jacqueline Fehr (SP, 4), and the transferor Thomas Heiniger (FDP, 3 times). With distance at the top of Mario Fehr (31 changes, SP) and Ernst Stocker (SVP, 30 times). The outgoing SVP-Director of construction, Markus Kägi completed the Podium with 7-time merriment.

Kägis counter

With Kägi we would be back at EPP-husband Daniel summer, wild boar hunting, and his hunters hat as presented by the poem. This ends with a page of the Director of planning:

"blow on the go So we make our way;
and we will upgrade;
and at least the garden of Kägi Markus ravage.

What Kägi counters:

"I don't want to take a substantive position, I can only say to Mr summer:
The boar spoke to the streams:
Whether summer poem,
I had to laugh."
note: "(laughter.)"
