I think the question is phrased in the wrong way.

Imho: Turkey (as it is) shouldn’t be part of the EU. But we should still try to make it part of the EU.

This is a good carrot to dangle in front of Turkey to steer it in the right direction. To stop negotiations wouldn’t help anybody.

And yes – if the conditions are met (and i don’t think Turkey will meet these soon) then another country in the EU will be a good thing. Even more so if it’s a financially able country like Turkey has been and probably will be again.

So what should I answer to your poll? Yes or No?

    hehe 😉
    I’m not telling you what to answer. But whatever you click: I’d love to learn if our this-week-to-be-published debate wins you over to one side.
