" 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!
Ah yes autonomy is a bit like democracy for some people - it is only OK if I agree with it!

The fact is that Switzerland made the decision to act in its own best interests, you may not agree with our decision but it is ours to make.
