    The new parliamentary democracy,it's not the will of the people that counts but the will of 650......will come back to haunt them.

    Erdogan is a top bloke today,apparently,mummy Merkel is going to whisper in his ear and all will be hunky dory.If you believe that then best book your flight for a cheap Turkish holiday.Of course you could take foreign office advice and not bother.Spend your money in the UK and enjoy some of its beauty there is plenty of it.

    I don't think it will help either campaign. Even if we left the EU in June, the migrant crisis would still be there and there would be a lot of pressure on Britain to play its part in helping to cope. Turkey is a long way off becoming an EU member despite any talk about fast-tracking.

    Well the provisional agreement would seem to give more ammo to the out side than in . Visa free travel within the Schengen zone may not directly effect us initially but we all know free travel becomes right to work very quickly as does right of abode ect . 70 million people most of which are poorer than anyone on this continent will see mass migration into Europe that will dwarf what we have seen in recent years .
    Fast tracking Turkeys membership to the EU will of course be played down by the in campaigners as they realise a lot of people are not too keen on it . You don't seem to understand what fast tracking means , it means fast tracking in that they will become members before a 'long way off' .



    Outside the EU we will of course be in a much better position to help when these world crisis arrive safe in the knowledge we have control of our borders and free from mass migrations from Eastern Europe

    On the face of it seems like mummy Merkel has got in right over her head.Now she is withdrawing diplomats and German schools from Turkey.Foreign Journos are doing a runner because the blame will be placed at someones feet.

    Some German diplomatic missions and some German schools have been temporarily closed on the advice of the Turkish security services because of intelligence they have received that they may be a target of a terrorist attack. To be clear, this is not a "withdrawal" of diplomats but advice to German citizens to avoid diplomatic buildings.

    Well alright then,they are at home in Turkey putting their feet up.Getting ready for Christmas.
    If I am honest I take more notice of the comments than the talented writing of Journalists they give a better gauge of what is really going on.

    This mess certainly benefits the Brexiteers. It's a shame that it's happening of course, but it's a clear case of "The worse, the better". Any almost-but-not-quite, possible, provisional, sort of hint that there might possibly be a hesitant promise of Turkish entry to the EU isn't worth the paper that it would have been written on if it had existed. But you can only either believe it or not believe it; if the former, then it looks mad and if the latter, then it looks weak.

    Well not like some we have to consider Wayne and Waynettas holiday arrangements as well,the pound is at a low level so they won't be getting their usual ten pints of Stella abroad.
