I'd completely forgotten Switzerland had voted to restrict immigration. Turns out their referendum was legally binding and they only have until February next year to agree some sort of new trade deal with the EU that includes some sort of immigration controls. Otherwise the Swiss lose access to the European single market which would be a disaster for their economy.
The headline alone is enough to give you nightmares.
Shock horror the Leave campaigns lied about basically everything. The question is do we respect the result even if it was achieved under false pretences, or do Parliament have a duty to act in the national interest and keep us in the EU?
Whatever the answer to that question about 50% of the population will have been betrayed by democracy. Whatever happens next the referendum result coupled with the toxic campaigns of Vote Leave, Leave.Eu etc has dealt lasting damage to the country.
