Juncker’s massive understatement

Posted on

An FT email reports this morning that:

EU commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said Turkey is in no position to become a member any time soon.

I think this might be considered a massive understatement.

Turkey is heading into totalitarianism. Juncker should have been saying so and condemning it.

Coup or not the reaction to what has happened in Turkey is deeply troubling for everyone in Europe. At a time when the world needs tolerance and democracy the spread of intolerance is a real threat.
