Switzerland are holding a referendum on ending mass immigration on 9th February.
The Referendum was the result of a Parliamentary Act introduced by the Swiss People’s Party, and whichever way the vote goes next month it demonstrates how restricted we are here in the UK where such a vote, if upheld, would be meaningless owing to European regulation. The Single European Act, signed in 1986, provides for the free movement of labour amongst other things, and so, as the European Commission keep telling us, we are powerless to stem the flow. Just today (January 13th) Commissioner Laslo Andor reminded us:
“The European Commission does all it can to make it easier for people to work in another EU country.”
