Today I've had two telephone calls and three emails. Yes I know that's far less than most of you but they all focused on one matter; all urged me to post about Cameron's and his bestest new friend Turkey. Just to enlighten you slightly, three of these friends had been involved in the Cypriot uprisings back in 1974 and all know more than most about Turkey, its history and its people than most of us. First hand knowledge is far superior to books written by standby observers.
I can understand their interest in David Cameron's sudden desire to have Turkey in the EU but what I don't comprehend is why is our Prime Minister is acting in this manner? The man is a Tory and not so long ago he promised a referendum on the EU, yet withdrew his promise within days - on a technicality if I remember. Now, he not only wants Turkey to be part of the EU, he's out on the world stage insisting they should be.
Has he forgotten Margaret Thatcher's cautious approach to the EU?
In 1988, she remarked, "We have not successfully rolled back the frontiers of the state in Britain, only to see them re-imposed at a European level, with a European super-state exercising a new dominance from Brussels".
It's not for me to explain the history of Turkey or the history of the Turkish application to join the EU, I'm sure you know it already. What I do wonder, and presently I have no answer, is why Cameron has made Turkey a priority visit. Is it this? I'm sure some of you will enlighten me and my friends.
OldRightie, a staunch Tory, compares his party's leader to Tony Blair. He's not wrong.
How many more people can this island hold and how many more can we financially support?
