    Would that mean millions of Turks would flood into the UK?

    obviously - after everything we've seen with Poland and Romania, why *wouldn't* it happen? I mean, there are already quite a lot of turks here

    There aren't even a million Poles or Romanians in the UK. So why would there be "millions" of Turks?

    It would become like Germany, kebab shops every other street. Oh wait, isn't that already the case in many UK cities?

    Yes... because a lot of British people like kebabs... (or at least pretend to when they're drunk)

    in recent enlargement there have been transitional restrictions on free movement between old and new member states which were supposed to allow time for the new member states economies to sync up with the wealthier existing members and prevent disruptive surges of migration...

    I'd guess the restrictions on Turkey would be more restrictive and longer lasting given the current political climate.

    Turkey isn't going to join and Britain isn't going to be "flooded" by anyone.

    Sorry, 800,000 clearly equals "millions". I'll remember that next time I do a maths test 0.8 can be substituted for >2

    it's like I've clearly shown that it's a big amount of immigration already - the only argument you can conjure up is "well it's not 2 million! neeh neeh neh neh neeh!" - as if that matters...? why is that number important? is that the only thing you can walk away with here? the fact that it's not 2 million? wow...I mean really...

    Yea, a large amount of immigration, but calling it millions is clearly false. Tbh even if it were millions I'd have absolutely no issue with it.

    I just don't like seeing issues such as immigration sensationalised.

    you think that millions more people isn't going to make a difference then?

    I don't think it will make a difference that will have any drastic effect on the quality of life of people in the UK, no.

    I think we ought to allow in whoever wants to come. Why? Because the fact that luck at birth determines the prospects of a human has always seemed complete madness to me.

    I have to say that i was a fairly soft Brexit voter and am generally pro-immigration however if Turkey were ever permitted free movement with the UK (1% is still 800,000 of them) then i would consider such an act unforgivable. Any Tory government which allowed that to happen would never receive my vote again.
