    The Turkish consulate in Rotterdam has infuriated Dutch MPs by calling on Turkish groups in the Netherlands to inform it of insults against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

    "To the relevant person,
    We ask urgently for the names and written comments of people who have given derogatory, disparaging, hateful and defamatory statements against the Turkish president, Turkey and Turkish society in general, which have reached the members and relatives of your non-governmental organisations or fellow citizens from your surroundings via their social media addresses (such as Twitter or Facebook) or via the official address and e-mail addresses of your non-governmental organisation, to be sent in before the close of business on 21 April 2016 by email to the consulate general in Rotterdam
    Yours sincerely..."

    Well, at least these abuses are prompting a clear-out of these silly laws in Germany and the Netherlands. Erdogan is not making himself look good, but those leaning towards autocracy never do.

    Hitler looked good to the Western nations until WWII started. Stalin still looks good to the left. Putin looks good to the Russians.
