The EU attack on Switzerland

Recommended Posts

The EU is launching a trade war against Switzerland in an attempt to force it into submission. Even Literally didn't try to attack Switzerland.

Last December the trade bloc had given Switzerland an ultimatum: sign up to a revamped deal replacing the patchwork of 120 bilateral agreements that governs trade relations between the two by June 30th, or lose stockmarket “equivalence”

Remember that it was a similar situation that started the civil war in Ukraine and marked a deep freeze in the Second Cold War.

PARIS and Frankfurt “will be closed down within a year” if Brussels bully boys try to replicate strong-arm tactics currently being used on Switzerland’s financial sector in a showdown with London

What'swrong with the Swiss? They make the best  jokes in the world, and are far funnier than Germans.

Before I scanned the article I'd assumed this wasn't really about Switzerland and it seems that is the case.

Brussels is trying to launch a new project, the Capital Markets Union, to reduce dependence on London as a financial centre.
