But Greek men are actually attractive.
Well the Turks on the west coast are of the same ethnic background. Infact the majority of Greeks are of Turkish descent.

there are alot better reasons not to let turkey join the EU than those mentioned.
The human rights records for one

In that case Britain should be kicked out of the E.U.

And you figure this how? There is a big difference between the abuse of the turks, and ourselves. No country is perfect when it comes to rights, but turkey is no where near the standard of the EU countries.

Quite so. I thought contemporary Britain had one of the best human rights records in the world.

Turkey's record on human rights is particularly poor. e.g. Ethnic cleansing of the Armenians, Curds and thus their EU application should be turned down (for the time being). The geography of Turkey is also another good reason.

Sure, Turkey is messed up at the moment, but how long do you think it would take for the EU to sort it out once it is in? The odds of it changing on its own are getting smaller and smaller as things in the world get more hectic. As countries pick sides for the comming turmoil, I would love Turkey to be with us, just so we don't need to keep looking over our shoulders.
