EU tells Swiss no single market access if no free movement of citizens | World news | The Guardian

I thought this gave some perspective to the silly talk about Britain’s ability to negotiate special deals with the EU:

‘The European Union is to show its determination to make no concessions to the UK on Brexit terms by telling Switzerland it will lose access to the single market if it goes ahead with plans to impose controls on the free movement of EU citizens.The Swiss-EU talks, under way for two years but now needing a solution possibly within weeks, throws up the exact same issues that will be raised in the UK’s exit talks – the degree to which the UK must accept free movement of the EU’s citizens as a price for access to the single market.’
