Aaaa... what? Logic?

Switzerland is not in EU so whether UK applies any preference to EU citizens after Brexit doesn't matter, does it?.

Once the UK is out of EU, the relation between Switzerland an UK can take whatever form it wants, irrespective of either UK's or Switzerland relation to the EU. Switzerland can choose to allow preferential treatment to UK citizens, and so can UK. Neither would necessarily be linked to whatever treatment the EU citizens get from either UK or Switzerland...

Switzerland and the EU have a wealth of bilateral agreements, including Schengen, so the EU-UK relationship will effect the CH-UK relationship. Plus the UK ambassador to CH and LI has said that CH will most likely follow whatever the EU do (in the information evening).

And whilst the UK might be CHs 6th biggest trading partner (and I recall the ambassador saying that CH is the UKs 3rd), the EU is it’s 1st (and the UKs first), so the Swiss are unlikely to give preferencial treatment to the UK over the EU.
