Life after Lesbos...

‘just back from Lesbos. And feeling all the better for having spent quality time among the natives of the island. Time for a fully-justified rant……
“PM” Gordon Brown wants to adopt a strong position on combating the terrorist threat by calling for a new world-wide database on suspects. Interpol has said it already had the passport numbers, fingerprints and photos of more than 11,000 suspected terrorists on its database. Apparently, Britain does not check this register against immigrants coming into the country or foreign nationals it has arrested.Furthermore, Blair casually signed away the UK veto over control of immigration policy at the EU Summit in June.
And think what might happen if Turkey managed to enter the EU. Conservative estimates estimate that 1 million Turks would migrate westwards if the country ever entered the EU. Martti Ahtisaari, a former Finnish president, headed a panel investigating potential migration from Turkey to the EU and concluded that 2.7 million Turkish migrants, about four percent of the Turkish population might emigrate to the EU. Surveys in Turkey have indicated that up to 30% of Turkish youth would migrate in search of higher wages.
While President Sarko is leading a courageous charge against Turkish EU membership, the EU institutions are fighting back.
Given that the UK currently has no immigration controls whatsoever, there should be genuine concern about the idea of Turkey ever entering the EU. Strangely, nobody in Blighty seems to have the remotest idea of what might be at stake….Istanbul Tory is mystified.
