I'm pretty much against it.
For a pretty selfish reason though.
I just don't really want the countries with the highest amounts of Parliamentary/Conciliary votes (Germany, France, UK, Poland,...) being amongst the most nationalist/right wing countries.
I think we should just give all the votes to Finland, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
That would be grate.
Deutschland uber alles and all that malarkey, eh?
Besides, their army are all fat bearded sacks of shite these days and their government are so scared of conflict that the German contingent in Afghanistan aren't allowed to go out in the dark! Awwww!
I mean. I don't care how rubbish their army is. I'm not really worried about an invasion or owt.
my really well thought out and well phrased plan, people!!
Nah, you're right. But the UK is pretty Euro-sceptic compared to the vast majority of other member states.
but the examples of it are subtle and brief. like an urban fox.
Clearly one can find examples of such things everywhere. I don't think it is any moreso than any other European nation, that's all.
Sarkozy's France is pretty much against any kind of Union on a socio-political level, yet he is constantly h8ing on da Turkz.
40 pages of economic analysis and i don't have any answers. purely on a social level, i'd say yes.
I think that it is vital that the EU engages with Turkey. Influence from the West will help support them and make it less likely that they will succumb to the more hardcore Islamic elements within the country.
The German opposition to their membership is, sadly, more racist than economic.
The Free Movement thing would be the best. We'd all be able to go over and live in Turkey, where its sunny!
islams? highly unorthodox.
i thought they were turkish.
Isn't a fair point at all. It might be an important consideration, but i fail to see how it's a reason against them joining. Isn't theirs still a strongly secular government? (i think that they're pretty strict on the banning of headscarves)
I have pretty much no support for the UK as a religious nation and, when it comes to religion and politics, really don't think that one should guide the other.
let the Kurds in instead?
Because the EU is a good thing and should get big and strong
and i've been to turkey and it's BRILL
You'll notice my argument has no political backing - I don't DO politics
