Swiss Parliament decides to withdraw the application to join the EU

Nobody seems to be interested in becoming a member in the coming billions and trillions of years far into the future: The Swiss parliament passed a proposition created by the EU-sceptical National Councillor (MP) Lukas Reimann, to withdraw the request of 1992. It is hardly surprising that the EU looks like an ever less attractive club to join. What, after all, is the appeal of joining a club into which the entire world can apparently move?

“This is a clear and historical message from the Swiss parliament to British voters. We wish you the best of luck for Brexit. These days, Switzerland is called Britzerland because Swiss people support the Brexit”, said MP Lukas Reimann. He pointed out: “A big advantage of leaving the EU, is free trade worldwide, not only between the member states, making it easier and cheaper for British companies to export their goods to the rest of the world. The boost to income outweighs the billions of pounds in membership fees that Britain would save if it left the EU. The UK can have even more of its important negotiation power internationally, by leaving the trading bloc: It would be free to establish trade agreements with non-EU countries worldwide. Worldwide, Switzerland has many more free trade agreements than with the EU. A well-educated scientist moved from Britain to the EU-free zone of Switzerland to set up his own company. Within a few hours, he could completely establish his own first company without expensive lawyers and accountants – even they can’t know all the regulations from Brussels. The vast majority of small and medium-sized firms do not trade with the EU but are restricted by a huge regulatory burden imposed from abroad. Leaving the EU makes the United Kingdom more open to the world without being bound or enslaved by EU laws on areas such as agriculture, justice and home affairs. The era of the EU application is over for Switzerland. And the era of the EU membership could be over soon for Britain. This is Britain’s chance of the century for a better future and for prosperity!
