EU parliament wants Turkish to be an official language in Europe - the writing is on the wall

Turkey is not a member of the EU but it is going to be, whatever those behind Project Fear tell you. As of this summer 75 million Turks can travel within the Schengen zone without a visa. And one day soon they will have full travel rights to come to Britain when Turkey gets full membership.

Mr Cameron and the other figures of the establishment who wish us to say in assure us that Turkey wont be joining the EU with the same sincerity Ted Heath & Harold Wilson told voters in 1975 that Britain's fishing waters would always be for British fishermen only and that all we were joining was a common market.

But we are not driving the good ship EU. To see which way the wind is blowing look at the EU parliament which seems to have no qualms about the fascist, gay hating, free speech denying, genocidal regime of President Erdogan.

A Report the EU Parliament published on 14 April calls for making Turkish an official language of the EU. The report was passed by 375 votes to 133, with 87 abstentions. Why Turkish since that country is not in Europe or the EU? Why not Hebrew for instance or for that matter Chinese? The reality is that while Israel and China will never join the EU, Turkey is on its way.

To misquote Groucho Mark "Any club that will admit it, is not a club I want to be a member of."

A touch of Aunt T on A Level Results day – Daughter Olaf sails into Oxford

My sister T spent her entire school career coming home from exams insisting that she had screwed up. It would subsequently emerge that she had finished top of the class every time. Okay my hard working younger sister did not get into Oxford but she gained entrance to a place in the Fens which is, I gather, almost as good.
