I can give you some:
1. It is not rational to grant 70+ million poor Turkish people access to a small island like the United Kingdom. This will only lead to racial tension which in turn increases islamophobia in the UK.
If you think that 70 million+ out of a population of 76.5 million+ are poor, you've obviously never been to Turkey. There is poverty in the East, but the Aegean coast, Ankara and Turkish Thrace are all rolling in it.
Transitional controls similar to those employed for Bulgaria and Romania can be employed to limit the initial migration of Turks to other EU states, and as we've seen 6 years on after the 2004 enlargement, many people are only here temporarily and will return home in time.
As for Islamophobia, it doesn't particularly matter how prevalent it is as long as it's still present. To cure it we have to better educate the population and get rid of crap like the Daily Express.
2. 97% of Turkey is in ASIA so why are they joining the EUROPEAN union?
Cyprus is unquestionably in Asia by any geographical definition, and they're in the EU. Turkey has been involved directly and hugely in European history for over half a millennium - that's sufficient for me to consider them culturally European, or at the very least a mix between the European and Islamic cultures.
Oh yes, and that 3% is a very important 3%. Istanbul? Turkish Thrace is terribly important to their economy.
3. It's not a matter of hating Islam but simply that the Islamic culture does not match with the British Culture. A very practical example would be one might not like the sight of mosques.
Any culture can mingle with any other, given time and tolerance on both sides.
As for mosques, most mosques in the UK are built in a local style and aren't very obtrusive.
4. There are enough kebab shops.
You can never have enough kebab shops.
