Turkey Assaults European Free Speech

Astonishingly, even before Turkey has managed to get in to the European Union, it is already assaulting free speech in Europe - the core foundation of any democracy.

The colourful episode that brings this truth to light is the documentary made last year by Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. Broadcast on ITV, the documentary, Duchess and Daughters: their Secret Mission, showed Fergie and her daughter, the Princess Eugenie, sneaking(because they weren't granted permission) round orphanages in Turkey, filming and commenting on what they saw. Conditions in the orphanages were shocking. Children and teenagers were literally shackled to their beds in some cases, showing what a barbaric country Turkey really is.

When the documentary was broadcast, the Turkish government, rather than act as a civilised government would - which is to say express horror about what had been revealed and promise to investigate and tackle the problem - instead attacked those who had made and broadcast the documentary. Ludicrously, the Turks accused the documentary makers of wanting to scupper Turkey's bid to join the European Union. They even alleged that crimes had been committed, including by the Duchess of York herself, and have apparently discussed attempting to extradite her to Turkey to face trial!

This is a showcase example of exactly the kind of insidiously corrupting effect Turkey will have on European freedoms if it is allowed to join the EU. Their Islamic totalitarian culture will gradually warp and distort our own civilised norms and, at least at first, it will happen so slowly that we barely notice it.

Incidentally the documentary can be viewed on YouTube here:
