" inspired by the Swiss autonomy" you mean like belonging to Schengen, the free movement of people and let us not forget the 100 bilateral agreements that currently exist between the EU and Switzerland.

The on-going implementation of these agreements obliges Switzerland to take over relevant EU legislation in the covered sectors.

As a consequence of its partial integration in the EU's single market, Switzerland pays a financial contribution to economic and social cohesion in the new EU Member States.

Funny sort of autonomy!
Of course you pay for it. We all do, it comes from us all. It makes sense to me to contribute to some well defined deals between CH that hosts me, we all benefit from it. But CH deciding on their own on the extent and conditions of the co-operation has nothing to do with the positions that are demanded from the legit full EU members. It is a dictate and not even close to the position of CH. CH is enjoying whatever they handpick out of the EU offer.
