Eurosceptics and Leave campaigners often cite Norway’s relationship with the EU as the model for Britain to emulate. Norway has access to the majority of the continent’s market and is part of the European Economic Area (EEA) agreement.
But in return Norway is obliged to be part of Europe’s passport-free Schengen travel zone. Norwegians also have no say in EU rules and have no representatives in any of the bloc’s institutions despite paying a considerable amount each year for its semi-detached relationship with the EU.
...or just paranoid?
