|Unlike Nick Clegg and Dodgy Dave I stick to my pledges|
I see that Switzerland is apparently withdrawing its application to join the EU.
A Google translation of part of the document:
Not only can we show that the EU is not the alpha and omega of the political system and that there are other much better solutions, but that is precisely what we do. Statistics say in fact all the same thing in terms of innovation, quality of life, competitiveness, leverage, stability, and in many other areas, Switzerland literally sinking (in) the EU . Quite simply, there is no valid reason to enter the EU. On the contrary, if it was a member, Switzerland would become a net contributor of a rotten carcass, and our people's rights would be only a memory.
