The question will be whether a Swiss judge believes what LX has said to you when that is contained in an affidavit.
My understanding is OP had a LX ticket LON-SYD return, since LX flight cancellation caused OP to get back to LON 24 hrs late, why cannot the OP make the EU261 claim in U.K. against LX.

Really, since LX & LH tickets on routings like this usually cost the same & LH follows EU261 rulings ( grudgingly ) itís a reason to avoid LX....
