Angry Fury as Turkish is made an 'official EU language' before ANY voters support membershi

Fury as Turkish is made an 'official EU language' before ANY voters support membership

TURKISH is to become an official language of the European Union, as the Islamic nation draws closer to being admitted as a fully-fledged EU member.

By Marco Giannangeli Whitehall Editor EXCLUSIVE

GETTY

Former Shadow Home Secretary David Davis is horrified at the moveNot a single voter from the EU's 28 member states - which have a total population of 508 million - has yet to vote in favour of Turkish membership.
But MEPs voted 375 – 133 to back the initiative by President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades, who asked the Dutch EU Presidency to add Turkish to the bloc’s 24 official languages in order to boost attempts to reach a reunification agreement on the Mediterranean island.

The move, expected to add £25m to the EU's annual budget, has infuriated critics who last night said it was further proof that Turkey’s accession to the EU was “all but guaranteed”.

They said that, although the European Commission would have to ratify the decision, earlier indicators were that dual pressures of Cyprus and Turkish accession would ensure it would be approved.

They warned that Turkey’s large population, which grew from 50 million in 1985 to 77 million in 2015 and is projected to overtake Germany’s by 2018, would give it more MEPs than the UK, making it the second biggest voting power under the EU’s Qualified Majority Voting system.

This should further water down the UK’s influence.

Turkey’s per capita GDP is also less than one quarter of the UK’s, and on a par with Romania and Bulgaria, fuelling concerns of mass economic migration to Britain.

Last month the European Union signed a groundbreaking deal with Turkey aimed at combating the tide of refugees making their way into Europe.
As part of the agreement any “new irregular migrants” who arrived in Greece after that date would be sent back to Turkey. In return EU member states would accept one Syrian refugee from Turkey for every one sent back.

Turkey was rewarded with a £5bn bonanza from Brussels and assurances that Turkish passport holders would enjoy visa-free access to Europe later this year.

“This is proof that Turkey becoming an EU member state is all but a done deal,” said Ukip migration spokesman Steven Woolfe.

“If we remain in the EU, we will before long be in political union with Turkey – a country which has vast deficiencies in the rule of law and freedom of the press.”

Ukip leader Nigel Farage has also said a vote for remaining in the EU is "a vote for Turkey, for massively increased migration to Britain."

Western leaders paving the way for full and total self destruction of prosperous, free, democratic western nations. Not just the leaders but there are far more protests in western nations in favor of more migration, more submitting to Islamic demands than the anti migration protests. That may change little by little, but the more time it takes the less possible it will be. Demographics is how democracy shapes and when the majority of Europe is out balanced with enough muslims and 3rd world equivalents idiots this is what you get. Not all Muslims are bad, not all 3rd world migrants are idiots, I've known many smart, decent, peaceful, civilized folks from different nations, but they are outnumbered also.

GBP 25 million for adding Turkish language to EU and GBP 5 billion for taking in Syrian refugees from Turkey, the mind boggles.

This year on Turkish citizens will get visa free access to Europe, it appears Turkey is being accomodated via back door.
