So the racist bastards there have decided to reduce the inflow of (EU) immigrants and now the EU is breaking off other free flow contracts too, so has Switzerland been exempted from the Erasmus program.

Any thoughts on this? Doesn't seem to me like Switzerland will benefit much from closing their borders considering the EU is ALL around them.

Bit strange to first join those programs and then be like: well we hate brown (and other) people lets get out.

Nah, I don't think anything will really happen. They have decided to establish limits to imigration but they haven't decided how far those will reach. Because it is basicall in both the EUs and Switzerlands interests to not hinder migration between those countries they will just establish limits way above the average immigration numbers. Just my Prognosis. Also: 50.3%:49.7%, seriously?
EDIT: ^not countries, the EU isn't a country yet, even though it'd be cool if it would be

You say nothing will happen, but the EU is already taking action.

Well, not yet the big guns, but believe me they will use those guns once the swiss go on with this.


Well I agree with you that this whole story is very annoying. However I think (or rather hope) that the swiss and the European politicians will manage to find a solution that everyone is ok with. No one will want to risk the economical consequences that face us if either the swiss introduce a strict(er) immigration law and/or we Europeans take the measures we threatened with (I think that the economical impact of Erasmus and the Horizon Programme is not really that high though). One should also consider that the referendum was only passed with a minuscule majority (0.3% of voters).

Anyway, I hope everything in this matter stays as civilised as possible

EDIT: To respond to your post briefly: I don't think that the Swiss will actually go on with this.

Just that the Swiss economy would basically be ruined without the rest of western Europe (and a couple of very rich dudes who don't like to pay taxes)

They're pretty bad - even when I lived near Geneva a few years ago there was a constant push to limit the rights of people on the French side of the border. I was actually pleasantly surprised to see that (IIRC) Geneva canton came out against the measure.

I wish Germany could do the same.

Sometimes I wish I could go to Berlin with a ton of bricks and mortar and just...start building the Wall again.

Switzerland is rich and is very appealing to people wanting to move there (if they can afford it)

If they want to close their borders GOOD FOR THEM. Maybe the EU countries that are pissed off at this should make their countries more desirable perhaps?

I'm guessing the swiss seems to think that most of the people that want to move in are not productive people. While most countries are turning into welfare states with open borders Switzerland wants to do the opposite. So let it be.

Racism =/= caution based on experience

Believe me, we'd love migration if it only brought doctorates and high-tech business, but it doesn't. High-tech business comes from the multinationals (expats) and the doctorate-migrants leave Europe more often than that they remain.

Most immigrants here in the Netherlands for example are muslim, which is fine. They also happen to be economic migrants, which means they're here for 'dem jerbs, not our precious culture. Since more of them have to be represented in politics (because god forbid they feel oppressed) more of their culture gets intermingled with ours and to us that feel like they're 'invading' us. It's what turned Amsterdam from a city of tolerance and respect into the capital of kebab shops.

Then there's the criminality originating from culture-clashes in minority groups (parents parenting their locally-born kids the way they were parented back in Marocco/wherever) stigmatising the whole affair.

And we're not alone. Look at the political trend in France, Germany, even bloody Britain (UKIP), and it seems that the EU is the most disconnected political entity in the world. People criticise Russia all they want, but atleast Putin considers his people more than his beloved Patriarch cares for.

Exactly, because alot of these poor people who come here end up starting their own business. If they would do that in their own country and achieve success, they can expand and create jobs for eachother.

thanks for the easy retort

Of course, then all the poor people there could buy stuff from those stores with the money they... don't have. Nice try. That's not quite how economies work. It takes more capital input to start a business, which might only be attainable by working somewhere there is a healthy economy.

Plus, you know, personal freedom to chose where you want to live.
