its settled BBC
I must say I find some comments here narrow-minded but now that it is sealed, everybody will wait and see and then can steer their comments with
actual facts rather than speculations.
do you think the motivation of the public of turkey is something like, "oh great we cant wait to flock to their land this will be great just that we
will have to wait 10 more years and its ours"
people want to enter EU because it is what they wish for a better life, the social rules and protection of their rights, raising of the standards,
great reforms in every aspect specially agriculture since the place has so much potential for it yet cant make a dime out of it for some reason. what
people need is better life standards in their own land, and believe me people of the nations who are allowed to buy property and land from turkey has
done it for last decade excessively that it became a concern. and now it is only limited to city limits so the sales could be slowed down. lots and
lots of people are visiting TR for holidays for gods sake, it is not a waste land and it is geographically a beautifull place, what it lacks is the
reforms and organisation. the TR could heal and improve itself without EU but it will take more time and resources. not to forget EU also needs this
as much as TR needs this.
not to forget TR and EU already signed the international customs agrement in 1999, which forbids TR to sign any trade agreement by its own with
whomever she wishes but only with those countries which EU signes a trade agrement with. The recent fuss about half-full membership was ridicilous,
and fortunately solved. can you think of something like "we can enter we can invest we can harvest we can employ we can buy and sell but you cant,
even though TR will be in good shape when these all settle down and conditions will improve, I think I could go abroad like new zealand or Australia I
admire those places regarding their nature, hey aussies when will you set-up something like an Union so we can enter
OK I will have to go
there by myself then.
