Switzerland plans to implement a restriction on all EU immigration by next month which will last for one year.

It is estimated that 1.2 million EU nationals currently reside in the nation of 8 million people, and with high house prices and competition for jobs, the Swiss have begun to resent immigrants. Switzerland has already imposed this restriction on certain Eastern European countries but now plans to apply it to all countries within the EU.

EU officials are not happy, claiming that Switzerland cannot merely pick and choose which policies they like. The EU and Switzerland share a special relationship in which half of what the country exports in bought by the EU.

Do you think Switzerland have the right idea?
