Controversial bunch of bastards – sorry, secondary ticketing agency – ViaGoGo has decided that it needs to make some changes to its operation. Changes such as, er, shutting the whole thing down and restarting as a Swiss company, far away from UK consumer protection laws and legislation against reselling Olympic tickets. As the consistently wonderful No Rock’n’Roll Fun puts it:
if Viagogo say you don’t need to worry about any silly laws guaranteeing your rights, why would you worry, eh? It’s not like they’re the sort of company that would suddenly vanish from the UK and turn up wearing lederhosen claiming there’s always been a cuckoo clock element to their business, is it?

Just so we’re clear: neither Lederhosen nor cuckoo clocks are Swiss but I get the point.
I think Simon was going for comic effect rather than accuracy :)
