Extract:
Switzerland will vote on Sunday whether to end its agreement with the EU on the free movement of people, in a referendum with echoes of the pro-Brexit campaign that led to Britain’s decision to leave the bloc.

The largest party in the Swiss parliament, the rightwing, anti-immigration Swiss People’s party (SVP), has called for the vote, arguing that the country must be allowed to set its own limit on the number of foreigners coming in to work.

Seems the Swiss weren't taken in by the Swiss equivalent of Brexiteers propaganda in fact overwhelmingly rejecting it .... for a second time


Switzerland referendum: Voters reject end to free movement with EU

Swiss voters have rejected a proposal to end an accord with the EU allowing the free movement of people.

With all referendum votes counted, nearly 62% said they wanted to keep free movement, while 38% were against.

That’s their relationship, which was/is somewhat different to what ours was.

Stupid people! I am not sure they knew what they were voting for!

Shouldn't they be made to do it again, and again, and again, until they get the right answer? Or, in this case, UK Remoaners like the result, so that will be it for 25 years: the people have spoken.

Re: The EU going forward

Book review of "... a fine overview of Britain in Europe over the last 50 years." Written by a Remainer, it gives an account of how we get to where we are. I will not buy it, but the review is worth a read.

Re: The EU going forward

Hungary, Poland to set up rule-of-law institute to counter EU

https://www.aljazeera.com/amp/news/2...-to-counter-eu

Extract:
Hungary and Poland will set up a joint institute to assess the state of rule of law across European Union member states so they are “not taken for fools” over allegations of rule of law breaches, Hungary’s foreign minister said on Monday.

After meeting Poland’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Zbigniew Rau in Budapest, Peter Szijjarto said an EU report on the rule of law, which will soon be discussed in Brussels, was expected to be a political statement rather than any well-founded assessment.

“The aim of this institute of comparative law would be that we should not be taken for fools,” Szijjarto said, adding he had “had enough of some western European politicians using us as a punchbag”.

The institute would examine how the rule of law was upheld across the EU to avoid “double standards” being applied to Hungary and Poland, he said.

Re: The EU going forward

Of course the EU is going forward but this federalist doesn’t think so.

Ian, isn't that exactly what the right-wing, anti-immigration Swiss People’s party (SVP) have done?

This is SVP's second shot at asking for, and getting a referendum on this question ? both times the electorate in a referendum have voted against ..... is that another case of "stupid people"????

Each time the Swiss haven't fallen for the equivalent of the Swiss Brexiteer propaganda .... with 62% voting NOT to end the accord with the EU .....
