Skip to comments.EU halts research, educational talks with Switzerland (the bullying starts)
Posted on 02/17/2014 6:33:39 AM PST by Olog-hai
The European Union said on Sunday it has postponed negotiations with Switzerland on its participation in multibillion-dollar research and educational schemes in the latest fallout from a shock Swiss vote in favor of immigration curbs.
The decision follows Switzerlands announcement that the result of last weeks referendum on immigration means that it will not be able to sign a labor market pact with new EU member Croatia on July 1 as planned.
European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso has warned that the narrow Swiss vote to restore quotas for migrants from the EU in breach of an accord with Brussels, would have serious consequences for relations between the wealthy Alpine nation and the 28-member union surrounding it.

They caved in to the IRS. They’ll cave in to this as well.
Translation: Hey, Switzerland, we’re ruining our culture, and in order to be fair, you must also ruin your culture.
By importing Muzlims who - sooner or later - we will be at war with.
They said, threatening one of the few European countries that Hitler didn't invade...
If the Swiss did breach an accord previously signed with Brussels, did they really think there wouldn’t be repercussions?
See Jefferson's Memo to President Washington, on the obvious limitation on Treaty Law (& accords).
Acceptance of an inability to control your borders is suicidal.

The serious consequences will be Europeans leaving the EU to live instead in Switzerland.
I didn’t say that the Swiss didn’t have every right to change their own laws on immigration, I said “did they really think there wouldn’t be consequences?”
Indeed but I can still say it again. The Swiss can change their own laws and Brussels can decides who gets it’s scientific grant money.
Looks like the Internationalists have given their orders in response to this slap in the face by the Swiss. You must destroy your culture, your heritage, and import as many 3rd world people as possible if you want to do business with us. I hope the Swiss people will continue to hold out against their politicians. People have the right to their own nation (Israel, Greece, the US, Switzerland, etc...)
but the The Large Hadron Collider is in Switzerland
That’s only because the USA is weak these days and doesn’t have the will to tell Brussels where to stick it. People don’t understand just what the USA was holding back.
What does the US have to do with it?
