Thanks Mystic. I got a good laugh today, when you said “Break a lot of things”. Oh yes indeed they will.
The biggest thing that is going to broken is Democracy.
Democracy was never workable. Too bad the USA did not seem to stick to its founding documents, that were designed very carefully to avoid Democracy. But the “Democracy” of free stuff from somebody else really gets the votes.
Some time ago I posted a video on Turkish military power. They are our proxy in the
Middle East and they are needed. Deals within Deals.
I guess they have already signed the deal to bail out the Turkish economy then (because it is going to need it……call it military aid maybe~?).
It is a fair dinkum fucking weird bit of dealing by Brussels though, to send open invites to the Turkish nation to `come on over, and our house is your house`~!?
Your point about the Turkish vs Ageing established Euro members demographic issue, is an excellent observation… But… I am with you on the sceptical slant also….
Was it done with the intent of improving Eurozone demographics, or was it done with the intent of
buying a Muslim friend..??? (especially with the mounting tensions in the middle east)…
Perhaps the intention was both…???
There are so many global issues at present, it is hard to distinguish between them all….
I assume the `deal` would include all EU countries though, not just the UK..???
Is there as much fuss being kicked up in France about this issue, or are we just hyper sensitive in the UK..??
I don’t think anyone has noticed yet. (France too busy with election and many have taken their eye of the euro-sprouts).
I find it unintelligible….no idea of what angle they are coming from. Even if it is a feint, and they will not do the final signing (but it looks like they will), I can’t make head nor tail of it~!
Turks have been the immigrant population of (not particularly) choice for Germany for decades…maybe they have pushed it to take the pressure off them (but that makes no sense as Germany is ageing faster than most and need the Turks (or someone).
It can’t just be to annoy the Brits, as everyone is included.
No, at time of going to press, I must pencil it in as a rare Brussels moment of genius.
The Spanish Dream.
Just wait until the new Red Brigade ex-pat “kidnappings for cash” program begins~!
I forgot about them~! What a Nasty bunch of people they were. Shows you, what disenfranchised people will do. If I was an Ex-pat I would remember ”All Roads lead home”
Sound thinking. Unless you have married a local girl and are under the protection of her extended family, I’d be packing my bags too. The sad thing is that many of these ex-pats have a great deal of their savings tied up in the underwater retirement villas. They can’t just pick and go, without losing a huge amount of money. Since they are no longer employable back home, they are stuck. They thought they were going to retire like royalty on the Gold Coast, buying cheap goods and services from the poor Spanish. Ah well, turnabout is fair play~!
Turkey may not be part of the EU or Euro but it is a member of NATO !!!! Military industrial complex. They are not treated the best but yes Nick they have a great education system…and will probably someday …. go where they have gone before.
Iraq public works ministry, in a similar plea to that of Hillary, requests India purchase oil from Iraq rather than Iran. India however, would be required by agreement to recipricate sending workers to help build Iraq infrastructure with shops and condos. High price to pay for oil me thinks. The country is not safe to walk about. If India take this option for abundant oil barter, Indian mothers will soon be over heard saying ” Yes that’s where my son went!!! I”ll be missing him : ( sigh “.
