Rate Article (4 / 1)

It seems that the Turkish population have voted in favour of giving the President more power, in a controversial referendum, which will amend the country’s constitution. According to reports, the “yes” vote won by a narrow margin.

Some opposition groups previously indicated that they would demand a recount for a large chunk of the votes. The referendum will effectively end Turkey’s parliamentary system, with the winner of the 2019 election gaining full….

Erdogan won because of the vote from the turks living in the EU. Those who will not feel any effect of the votes result. Erdogans actions will isolate turkey more and more. Toerism from the rich Europeans will drop. US and germany will pull back from Incirlik and stop supporting turkey against PKK and will side with SDF. Turkey will loose the war in syria against SAA and Russia, they will move on northern aleppo somewhere in the future. If turkey react with attacks on russians troops they will also loose russian tourism. SDF will move focus to Idlib after… Read more »

IMHO, it was simply easier to rig the election in consulates/embassies. Well, we haven’t as many Turks here than in Germany but I’d say that 80% of those I know deeply HATE Erdolf. “US and germany will pull back from Incirlik and stop supporting turkey against PKK and will side with SDF” Germans and Belgians ALREADY pulled their aircraft out! “If turkey react with attacks on russians troops they will also loose russian tourism.” => And have their asses kicked at the same time. “SDF will move focus to Idlib after Raqqa.” => Very difficult to say. More likely, especially… Read more »

@DbSX. No French Turks voted just as stupid as German Turks.

Referendum results abroad show that two thirds of the Turks in Western Europe do not want a free, democratic constitution and society.

Germany – Yes (63.2%)
Austria – Yes (72.3%)
Belgium – Yes (77.9%)
Denmark – Yes (61.6%)
France – Yes (64.8%)
Netherlands – Yes (69.9%)
Luxembourg – Yes (61.5%)

These two thirds of the Turks in Western Europe must be send home to their beloved Fuehrer in Turkey. They are a fifth column fighting against democracy in Europe.

I’m not pointing the results : all those I know deeply can’t bear this rat. Many indicators point the election was rigged, it’s even more easier through embassies/consulates, you know 🙂

I doubt about The US. IMHO the US need the Turks in their fight to destabilize the EU and the Euro. Trump already congratulated Erdogan.

Lets make them feel the results. Close the mosques that are financed by the Turk Ministry of Religion. Because we cannot have institutions controlled by a dictatorship. The same applies for GCC financed mosques.

EU must end both toll union and European welfare agreement with Turkey.
We have nothing in common with dictatorships.

“We have nothing in common with dictatorships”
=> Definitively NOT. And we’re many to think we even shouldn’t do business with dictatorships (although it’s technically not very possible).

You can do business. But they can not have favorable conditions. No toll union means their goods compete with East Asian and African countries without being protected by the toll barrier. Blink.
