Swiss bank accounts

It might sound like a cliché but banks are omnipresent here. One side of Parliament Square is lined by the parliament. Half a side is open space. The remaining two and a half sides are taken up by various heavyweight Swiss banks. Could we say that the ratio of 1:2.5 is the Swiss estimation of the value of politics against money?

I’ve always heard about politicians here maintaining humungous swiss bank accounts! Familiar with the Marcos regime? I think he started it all for us.
