1. Turkey is not geographically part of Europe. The vast majority of the country is in Asia.
2. Turkey is still illegally occupying part of Cyprus – unacceptable in the EU or internationally
3. We have more than enough Muslims trying to change our laws and culture without an uncontrolled flood from an islamic state who would have the 'right' to settle here under EU rules.
4. Turkeys economy is weak. We already have enough problems with Spain, Portugal, Ireland and Greece without compounding things – to say nothing of our own massice Labour debt!
