Well, seems we do nothing...
BRUSSELS bureaucrats have handed more than £100million to Turkey to build a high-speed rail link - in case the country joins the EU.Except moan and continue to vote for political parties who are in love with that damned institution. If Turkey were to join the EU (something that I hope will only happen if we leave) the EU's current financial problems could be dwarfed and the internal immigration problems certain countries are experiencing could be come far, far worse. Yet no one in the EU or indeed it appears the UK government appears to be able to heed the warning signs, perhaps they believe we'll welcome 70 million Turks in a similar way they appear to believe we'll welcome all those Romanians and Bulgarians? I suspect part of the problem is that the bureaucrats of the EU do not have to live next to the problems they create, a factor shared by many of the political classes in all of Europe. They have become divorced from reality and never see the consequances, it's always someone else who deals with the mess.
The staggering sum does not have to be paid back and there will be no return on the investment.
The cash is from a £12.1billion fund to support nations hoping to join the EU to which Britain contributes £120million a year.
News of the money for the rail link between Turkey's two biggest cities, Istanbul and Ankara, provoked outrage last night.
Tory MP Douglas Carswell labelled the EU's decision "bizarre".
He said: "Other countries that have given money to Turkey, such as China, expect a return on their capital.
"It is funny how a communist country understands the fundamental principal of capitalism while the EU elite are giving money to Turkey without looking for a return on their investment."
This is why they are so profligate with our cash, they haven't a clue where it comes from and how it affects us.
We should perhaps simply rise up and hang them all, before they bankrupt us.
Just a thought...
