Next week-end we will have a referendum on the bilateral treaties with the European Union.* The “no”-committee sees a new danger looming. An evil wizard has transformed the black sheep, that have been kicked so successfully out of Switzerland, into black crows, hungry for Swiss cheese. The “yes”-campaign has responded with a plant. An apple tree carries the fruits of the bilateral treaties. There is now another online game, where you have to protect an apple tree from black crows.
Is that a bit confusing for you? It's actually very simple. Four legs bad, two legs bad, and voting “yes” will preserve a tree of knowledge in the Swiss paradise.
*More precisely, it’s about the free movement of labor treaty and its extension to Bulgaria and Romania. Because of the “clause guillotine” a “no” would also cancel the other bilateral treaties. And sheep don’t like guillotines.
