Switzerland said "no deal" to Brussels’ freedom of movement demands and pulled out of seven years of tortured trade negotiations with the European Union on Wednesday.
Bern pulled the plug after years of difficult talks over Single Market access that are reminiscent of the European Commission’s Brexit negotiations with the UK over the past four years.
Shades of Brexit negotiations as Swiss government rejects European Union overtures following seven years of diplomatic wrangling.
Seems Democracy is still alive in Switzerland.
The Swiss are no fools and have emphatically rejected an EU trade deal with Brussels' rules and regulations, the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and free benefits to workers from the EU.
Typically, the EU has immediately threatened reprisals.
