all the polls fool you If that's true, the Swiss Voting public this coming weekend, twice for Yes. For two templates, the something crucial in common: Both of them are not children of political insight, but products to foreign pressure.
In the implementation of the EU weapons Directive, that is obvious. Here, Switzerland is moving because she is afraid to fly out of the Schengen area. However, the control template is only to be understood as a response to pressure from the outside. The huge Structure with the AHV funding was only raised because the OECD is threatening to put Switzerland on a black list of tax havens, the Holding privilege will not be deleted.
The Swiss reform of the donkey, who seemed to be in the recent past, always petulant, los trottet obviously only then good, if beyond the border POPs of the whip. Until recently, the weapon was legal in Switzerland as Holy cow as in the past the Bank secret. In 2011 the Initiative "for protection against gun violence had" no Chance in front of the people. However, when the pressure from the outside grows, does not crumble, only the Swiss banking secrecy, it is also stricter weapons policies are suddenly possible.
farewell without the aftermath of
Even more impressive is what have made the threats of the OECD. A year ago, when the Council of States of the AHV-tax presented the Deal, I was convinced that the broad left-right Alliance is the latest ground to the delegates meetings of the parties. This is not done by far, and for the first time in a long Time defies such a package of party political polarisation.
With pressure from the OECD in the neck, not only the civil policy, but also the bourgeois base is surprisingly willing to compromise against the left.
The encouraging message of a double Yes on the next weekend: The stubborn Swiss reform ass can still move. The unpleasant: He only does this when out POPs the whip. Whether we get real Reform of the pension on the series, whether we will be able to improve things such as the compatibility of family and profession, however, is only to ourselves. Here, there is no benevolent support in the Form of pressure from the outside. And yet the really big challenges in the design of the life are homemade problems.
The experiences with reforms under pressure from the outside to teach at least one thing: In retrospect, the departure from the sacred cows is about to happen, often with surprisingly little after-effects. So why not a little more courage to your own movement?
What does this mean for the framework agreement?
A question mark in all of this, however, is even bigger in space: If only the pressure from the outside, the blockades, the Swiss policy can, why these are stuck just with the framework agreement in such a way? Despite years of Threatening the EU, the donkeys buck is still here. A real lash blast is here remained apparent. A new study by the Bertelsmann Foundation shows what it is actually: No country benefits so much from the access to the EU internal market such as the middle of the cake-located, Non-EU-member Switzerland. While in Switzerland, the Belief is that the privileged access to the single market, even without a framework agreement remains in place, will not move the donkey.
the EU, however, only once agents such as the OECD black lists, then he learns as quick as a flash, the Gallop of a racehorse. The expected double confirmed at next weekends, namely one thing: Despite All the rhetoric is the Resistance of pressure-not a Swiss speciality. The wily Swiss donkey defends the sovereignty with the teeth and Claws of the same length, to show that this is a burden, perhaps his wallet is more than relieved.
