Words are meaningless, especially sentences…


While all of our writers are trying to figure out what to write about this european union thing,I think this cartoon shows what will happen.

    Yeah, I know that one from way back. Every country joining the EU had those (only the flags differ, of course.)
    Don’t worry, buddy. It won’t happen.

    First of all I’m not worrying. Where did you get that? :) We’re 70 million people living in this warm and beautiful country and probably anatolia can handle another 70 million from cold and boring europe and maybe you can explain why 30.000 EU citizen bought estates in Turkey last year while the number was below 1000 2 years ago? Can you?

    “Don’t worry” is a just a phrase. I’ll change it to “hang lose”, okay?

    All I wanted to add is, that there is a common fear among countries who are about to join the EU: that it only wants to rip them off. This is what this cartoon is about. I’ve seen cartoons like that from Hungary, Austria, Scandinavia,… all over the place. A lot of people are afraid of changes.

    Have you ever been around Europe? I don’t think that Lissabon, Barcelona or Sardinia are especially cold and boring places? Berlin, London, Paris and even Rome might be a little colder than Istanbul, but if you find them boring, you are doing something wrong. If you prefer to stay in your hometown, that is okay. Just don’t put down what you don’t know.

    And to your question: maybe that has something to do with your government changing the laws so people from outside Turkey are now able to buy property.

    Finally, I don’t think Turkey could handle doubling its population without an economic diseaster. No country in the world could (except maybe for Luxembourg).
