    The talks just went further, they haven't been allowed into the EU yet, so please don't make my heart jump

    Turkey are getting closer to joining the EU, make no mistake. Turkey has the EU over a barrel as they are the only realistic solution to solving part of the migrant crisis.


    Turkey joining the EU would be one of the worst things possible. tbh the best method to solving the refugee crisis owuld be a blockade, so the migrants physically can't get any further.

    Turkey is in Asia, and NOT in Europe!
