Although Switzerland is not part of the European Union, there appears to be a movement to put to referendum the cessation of the free movement agreement, between EU nations (citizens) and Switzerland (citizens).

The initiative ‘For limited immigration' proposes that Switzerland manage its immigration policy unilaterally. If accepted at referendum, the Swiss government would have one year to put an end to the country's free movement agreement with the EU, which currently allows EU citizens to work and live freely in Switzerland, and vice versa.

Doing so would undoubtedly throw Swiss-EU relations into disarray, since the free movement agreement is part of a package of seven bilaterals signed in 1999 covering agriculture, research, civil aviation, transport and trade

Who could blame the Swiss.

The EU with its free for all mass immigration policy without adequate background checks has become a sea of social anarchy.
In addition the notion of successful multicultural integration with huge numbers has been blown apart for the idiotic myth it always represented.

Well done the Swiss.
A country that knows how to protect its own people unlike the vassal states of an EU hell bent on a left wing trip to oblivion.

Indeed.

If Switzerland votes to repeal the principle of free movement, every other agreement currently between the EU and Switzerland ceases - and the overall agreements between Switzerland and EU ceases.
(the relationship between Switzerland and the EU requires all agreements to operate, if one or more agreements is repealed, all agreements cease, as under the treaty between the EU and Switzerland).

The Swiss do not need the EU.
Never did.
It was nice to be able enter Switzerland without border checks but EU scumbags aided by formal heretic Cardinal Bergoglio [aka pope francis] and his sidekick George Soros have made a great effort at scuppering all that.

Did you see where the heretic married a chilly couple today? In the sky no less. What's he at at all, a tall?

Are you starting to go soft on him?

Come on now.

You're usually capable of better invective that that.

It's a joke marriage by a joke pseudo Pope.
He just urinates on all the normal prudent public formalities of marriage , Catholic or otherwise.

No serious catholic accepts Bergoglio who has proved himself to be a formal heretic.

Bergoglio and Soros are well mated to destroy what remains of European culture.

The Swiss see the threat and are taking the steps they normally do historically speaking.

But I don't think it's the Swiss who are against the princilel of Free Movement. They only want to re-interpret it in a more sensible manner.

It's the EU that will then scrap the entire agreement, rather like an an angry baby throwing its toys out of the pram.

It is the Swiss who want to scrap the freedom of movement.

Repeal would have the knock on effect

Doing so would undoubtedly throw Swiss-EU relations into disarray, since the free movement agreement is part of a package of seven bilaterals signed in 1999 covering agriculture, research, civil aviation, transport and trade.

Under the so-called guillotine clause, ending one of these seven bilaterals would put an end to them all. And the EU is unlikely to shift from this position, since it has always maintained – as it is currently impressing upon Britain – that a country cannot have access to the single market without accepting free movement.

It depends what you mean by Free Movement.

'The man on the Clapham omnibus' wouldn't think that Free Movement meant Benefit Tourism, Health tourism, Child Benefit for the fourteen kids back in Poland etc.

But the Swiss are doing the the right thing.

Urinates on them from 36,000' no less.

Is he closer to God up there, do you reckon?

The EU has compromised its own borders, so of course any other bordering country now needs to review its border policy with respect to the EU.

It is not acceptable that 500 million EU citizens have the right to set up home in a small country like Switzerland, added SVP president Albert Rösti.
or that 8 million Swiss have the right to set up home anywhere in the EU?

Single market means free movement. If you don't like it, fine, leave, but don't leave and complain that it's not fair to lose access to single market.

All because Germany wants more and more cheap labour. The UK didn't really think this Brexit lark through. They had a problem with Europeans coming in but seemingly no problem with their Islam epidemic.
