Re: Masseneinwanderung Stoppen [initiative to limit immigration]

When I saw the press conference from the Bundeshaus, especially from Fr. Sommaruga, I got the feeling that the reason why the majority of the Bundesrat was against it is that it will cause "shit load of work" for them in the following 3 years...

Re: Masseneinwanderung Stoppen [initiative to limit immigration]

The Tages Anzeiger has already laid out three separate outcomes to the vote (Please read here for more information http://www.tagesanzeiger.ch/schweiz/...story/10913193).

A rough translation of the highest outcome is provided below:

It is more likely that Switzerland has to change the rules unilaterally to implement the initiative. This can be done by the Federal Assembly by the required quota is introduced by legislative amendment . Does the Parliament to do so within three years of adoption , the Federal Council must implement the initiative by ordinance .

However, the initiative does not contain any provision that Switzerland would have to terminate the Agreement.


There will be a lot of talk, but at this moment, I'm not sure how it will affect all of us "foreigners". Interesting times indeed.

The FDP asks that Blocher be designated to lead negociations with the EU to implement the new agreement after the 9th Feb vote.
They don't lack sense of humour.

Re: results on 9 Feb 14

maybe a stupid observation, but the initiative just calls for quotas...couldnt the government just place extremely high quotas that have no chance of being filled?

What's infantile about saying that isolation will hurt the Swiss economy and that in turn will lead to people getting fired that don't have permanent resident status? Please explain. Unfortunately, it's not the first time this has happened - just Google for Italians in Switzerland in the late 60s.
SVP (quote from Toni Brunner today) said that they want to have more short term employments (see L Permit)…and what probably can happen is that if you are unemployed and not having a C-permit will not be eligible to stay…

I wonder how it would feel if EU proposed initiative introducing visitors permits for all the residents in Switzerland. That's a scary thought. Goodbye holiday makers
So sorry but THAT was the case. While France on its borders (airports for example) made channels for EEC+CH citizens all CH citizens in London Heathrow had to queue behind hundreds of peope from Africa and Asia and if looking anykind of Afro-Asian had no chance to slip. And that meant a difference of an hour

I personally suffered from that 30 or 40 times. Scary ? no no no no scary it it is not but idio0tic it is. And at all times when EU/SVP played the ugly cards (the EU again and again support Ayatollah Blocher while declaring the contrary) I tried to take it with humour

Re: Masseneinwanderung Stoppen [initiative to limit immigration]

Yes the initiative was passed by a huge margin….:roll eyes:

so what you are directly saying is that approx. 50% of the Swiss has no common sense...

Toni Bruner is still living in the 70's mentality regarding immigration: they thought they will get arms for labour but they discovered they had men.

50.3% voted in favour of introduced EU quotas. It only needed 50% to pass.
And a majority of cantons, which they got almost 2:1.
