Love him or hate him, UKIP’s Nigel Farage speaks a lot of truth regrading the EU’s destructive encroachment towards Erdogan’s Turkey.
Here is what Farage had to say in a recent speech in front of his EU MPs.
The only question is when will Sultan Erdogan, press David Cameron to issue an arrest warrant for Nigel Farage in the UK for speaking so poorly of Turkey’s President?
I’ve seen many failures in my long years here, the introduction of a currency that has impoverished the Mediterranean, I’ve seen the idealised Schengen area lead to the free movement of kalashnikovs, in every single week a month we see the attempt to create a single state of Europe which of course the European People’s don’t want, but the EU’s common asylum policy is the lowest ebb for policy yet.
Chancellor Merkel took the cork out of a champagne bottle and said anyone could come and now you’re trying to put the cork back in a realizing it’s not possible. So you’ve turned to somebody else to sort out your own problem…so let’s talk Turkey.
They have have taken your weakness and they’ve now decided they’re going to blackmail you. Not only do they want three billion euros from you this year, they going to want three billion euros from you every single year. And in return they’ve given absolutely no guarantees whatsoever that they will stop people from coming, or indeed take people back.
And they’ve managed to persuade you (whatever the commissioner says) into offering them by October next year visa free access for 75 million people, whose average GDP income is half that of the poorest EU member state.
I guess what you’re doing is you’re saying the way we will stop illegal immigration, is to make it all legal immigration. And if that doesn’t take the biscuit, now you’re going to fast-track Turkey to be an EU member…so let’s just think about that.
A country 97% of whose land mass is in Asia, apparently you want to join Europe. It is a country that appears to be keener on bombing the Kurds than it is on taking on Isis.
It is a country that has turned a complete blind eye to ISIS fighters traveling through its territory. It is a country, according to the Pew Institute, whose poll last week showed that 8% of those 75 million actively encourage and support the aims of ISIS.
It is a country directly and closely linked with buying ISIS oil, and we will finish up bordering Syria Iraq and Iran.
It is mad!
It is the most dangerous decision the European Union has yet taken.
I’m sure the British Prime Minister will be delighted, he has campaigned for this since 2005.
To me, without any of the other debate, it their was one single reason why Britain should, in this referendum, vote to leave the European Union, it is the folly of political integration with Turkey.
It is not only stupid it is damn dangerous.
