    Switzerland has the Ball's to say NO

    With all the current UK / Europe immigration news articles coming on a daily basis , this one stands out like a shining beacon of common sense, so here's a simplistic question , even though Switzerland is not an EU member but signed up to the EU rules on the freedom of movement directive, its saying a resounding '' no more '' , so why can't Britain do the same . May be ive got it all wrong , but it does seem plainly obvious that Switzerland has the ball's to stand up for its own citizens .

    But if they don't have a lot of immigrants coming into their Country who will do all of the shit jobs like fast food worker and vegetable picker? Somebodies got to do the shit work and I am sure that the salaries for these jobs are not big so your average wealthy Swiss person ain't gonna want to do it I would imagine.

    Didn't think of that! Probably because back in the US students hardly work anymore because they have to compete with all the immigrants.

    Nice to see a Country drawing a line others should follow their example.

    That's because the rich in your country don't give a crap about your needs, they want cheap labour. They can do so because UK is a democracy by name only, the legislation being a handful of politicians in the service of the rich, and they wouldn't even dare to suggest a law that restricts immigration. Empty talk about it yes, but nothing comes out of it, ever. Switzerland legislates much by referendums, you vote not only for parties and politicians, but directly for or against a proposed law.

    When Britons are prepared to work for minimum wage, then this OP will have more relevance. Currently, British people baulk at even GBP 6 per hour.

    If they worked for GBP 3 per hour, Britain might be able to have an economically competitive manufacturing industry again.

    Oh right,

    You want the Poms to work for 3 pounds an hour so the employer can pocket more profit whilst the worker struggles to live.

    Can see your no working man.

    That's why we have Unions so the corrupt employers do not exploit there workers.

    No Union and the working man will always get the shitty wicket.

    Switzerland has no balls, they're the more conformist, conservative - and treacherous - lot one could find. They just happen to have a system where your voice can be heard without actually needing balls. Meaning, you can get a law passed in itself, no need to "dirty your hands" by openly supporting the far-right and their whole agenda (since most bourgeois type of people find this distasteful).

    Just automatize, like the Japanese do.

    Immigrants of the 1st generation still can do some basic jobs, but the 2nd and 3rd generation already feel entitled and try to shirk work and live off society by all means anyway, so immigration is a much higher cost than the most expensive robots in the end.

    Switzerland has true democracy where any significant minority opinion has a chance to be heard through referendum. This is also how they stopped the construction of mosques 2 years ago.

    All the big countries in Europe should ideally be broken down into smaller entities along the traditional ethnic lines that would adopt the Swiss system. Then those little Switzerlands could use the same system to chose their government at the EU level and we could talk of a true democracy maybe.

    Imho England should be twinned with Switzerland. The Welsh and Scots can continue fighting amongst themselves whilst the english (that doesn't include Millwall, geordies and some scousers btw) can progress to better things without being held back by the chavettes of society.

    We should absolve ourselves of any obligation to engage in overseas wars/battles and anyone who wishes to seek the safe haven of our shores would have to pay a hefty entry fee. Are you listening Mr Thaksin etc: etc:

    I think Western European countries have lost their facking minds agreeing to this shit.

    Does keeping your culture somewhat intact mean anything anymore? These changes really ought to be more restrictive and gradual.

    We are overrun with Roma gypsies. I can't go to buy a litre of milk without some dirty hand outstreached. They swap babies and pretend to be handicapped. I won't start on their very good pickpocketing skills.

    Switzerland has changed for the worse. I used to have no problems about walking home at 2 am. Now i have to budget for a taxi, which isn't cheap.

    Oh, and we have loads of african drug dealers. They hang around the street corners where the prossies used to be and harass anyone that looks at them. They keep boulettes of cocaine stuffed in their mouths. And it is the worst shit ever (so i've been told.....)

    But i still love living here!! Renewing my work permit this week.

    There were loads of those in Malta as well. They come up with grimy kid and a badly photocopied "report" that says their kid needs an operation.

    Basically just told them to fuck off or they'd need reconstructive surgery themselves, but I don't think they understood the pithy humour of my retort.

    The point is, what they are doing is illegal. It breaches the agreement in its core raison d'ętre which is freedom of movement within the community. Kick them out and treat them the same as coons, septics and Antipodeans. That'll teach the smug, complacent little fuckers.

    true ?, or just a cliched saying you have been brainwashed to bleat out .
    Every min wage job has a hundred applications from Brits .

    I wish they'd limit immigration to Australia. I now have to wait in line everywhere behind many foreigners. Most of these people only appeared in the last 10 years. But that's Growth Economics for you ! It's like being on a treadmill......

    And they'd need government food stamps to survive as in the states.
    The government is subsidizing big business (because thats all there is these days) and tycoons.
    When the companies reduce their magins to the point people earning minimum wage can afford their products things may start to make sense again.

    If I were to go back west, Switzerland is tempting. I like a country that reports to it's citizens. Unfortunately I'd have to work though- is there a demand for kebabs over there?

    Loads of kebab shops. Surprisingly large amount of hookers as well.
