Re: EU human rights law under bilateral treaty

To explain further and try to answer your question a bit better, the law in the UK is now that folks who can prove their status as EU citizens exercising human rights cannot be denied these rights. So, UK immigration has been told that they must accept marriage certificates and other evidence of the existence of such rights AT THE AIRPORT. They can't dissallow such a lack of a residence card, and they are obliged to give folks time to gather evidence if they do not have such at the airport.

It is strange, but that is the EU law in action. Essentially the government must prove the suspect has no rights before they can act.

If these principles are upheld in Switzerland, you can imagine the reaction from the swiss natives. They will, in a very real sense, have less rights in their own country than EU workers.

That is currently the case in the UK.
