The Swiss already know the full consequences. Am I the only one who realises that if the people of Switzerland really wanted to vote on this issue again there would have been popular initiatives for signing to try and get another referendum on the subject? Has this happened? No. Not once in the 3 years since the vote was taken. Why? Because that's what the Swiss people want. The Swiss people knew, the Swiss people voted, now the government has to implement their decision. End of story.
I suppose for the Swiss, the bilaterals are recent. It's easy to remember what life was before them and easy to imagine life without them.

For the average person in the street, very little has changed. They were fine before the bilaterals, they'll be fine if they're removed.
