Swiss Reject Immigration Controls

Recommended Posts

Apparently in the last 18 years Switzerland has had 7 immigration related referendums. In February of this year there was the referendum "against mass immigration" which succeeded by a slim majority. That result still stands.

The latest referendum result (voting on the 0.2% of population figure) has been well highlighted by the bbc and was mentioned on the radio news yesterday. The radio news didn't seem to mention the February result.

The bbc headline below seems a bit misleading

Ecopop referendum: Swiss reject immigration curbs

- misleading as the latest referendum was about restricting the amount to 0.2% rather than whether or not there should be curbs.

Maybe the UK should have a vote on immigration as well.

Given the chance the UK might vote the same way (or not).
