Re: Swiss/EU negotiations: what's the bottom line?

The one thing I honestly dont get: The Swiss have a vote on burqas, minarets, whether cows should be allowed to have horns and what not else. This is the most important contract in at least a decade with the by far most important trading partner of the country. Yet the Bundesrat just decides on their own and clearly not unanimously either...

The SVP celebrates it as a victory of independence and democracy, but I fail to see any of the two.
Because Switzerland has never voted about the EU or anything vaguely related to that topic.

Meanwhile Germany, who have genuinely never had the balls to ask their voters, are giving lessons on democracy. As in, don't have it.
