A vote of confidence

With almost 60% of yes, the Swiss people voted for the renewal and extension of the bilateral agreements with the EU. This vote is a glimmer of hope because it reveals that, in a moment of crisis, people can still vote rationally, defeating the scaremongering images of cruel ravens, proposed by the pathetic and clueless Swiss People's Party.

Below it's a summary of past results from other ballots on EU issues in Switzerland since 1992.

Switzerland is definitely aiming at stable, fruitful relationships with other EU members.

the difference to get to integrate the European Union was just 25000 votes in 1992? Is that right? can some Swiss peer tell a bit more about this....
