A success for Europe, and about time too

The Swiss have voted to join the Schengen border-free zone, meaning that I won’t have to be woken at 2 a.m. to get my passport out when travelling from Brussels to Italy by train. More interestingly, the UK and Ireland are not members, even though the non-EU Norwegians and Icelanders are. Indeed, the UK & Ireland are the only countries in Western Europe not to be Schengen members now.

This may not be quite the right time, but is here the place to start a UK-into-Schengen campaign? I’m sick of having to find my passport every time I want to go to Paris.
