In any other circumstances I would agree with this, but there is a warzone on Turkey's southern border involving a militant group that a) is explicitly anti-Britain, b) is far, far worse than Erdogan and c) has been responsible for several terrorist atrocities in Europe over the last year. Turkey is also rather close to Russia, which has an unpredictable and volatile dictator in charge of it who may well want to launch an anti-West war in future. Sanctions against Turkey are seriously a wrong move right now.
If we are to have sanctions, one which has been suggested in different circles is to end any separate flights and use of business or first class travel for unpleasant regimes. Make Turkish politicians fly with Ryanair or Easyjet with all the British tourists who fly there. Another is to restrict or stop arms sales. I am not convinced of the case made by the government yet, other than if they support an end to extraditions.
I am still undecided about Turkey. It is clear that Erdogan is a very unpleasant individual but there have been worse and I fear that if there are further coups in the near future, Turkey is in danger of civil war.
Debate on this statement has concluded.
