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

The SVP celebrates it as a victory of independence and democracy, but I fail to see any of the two.
Accepting the framework would have forced accepting whatever the EU will decide in the areas governed by it. In other words, decisions by the Swiss voters population gets replaced by subjugation under the EU dictate, ergo no more Swiss democracy in those areas. From that perspective, refusing the framework means keeping that decision power in Swiss hands, and makes it a win for Swiss democracy.

That just doesn't explain how accepting EU rule in a democratic process would somehow make the resulting state non-democratic. Or why that's as important as some try to paint it as.
