    Default Theresa May to meet Turkey's President Erdogan for tips on shoring up dissents?

    Remainers will not even hear the midnight knock knock on the door they'll be swept away Erdogan style before waking up in a unknowing location.

    Can't believe we're talking to this guy with his supposed ISIS connections. We were told Turkey would be joining the EU so vote out and now we're looking to trade with this near dictator making who knows what concessions? She's doing the rounds of all the best political leaders, isn't she? 🤦

    How desperate are we?!

    Back to sleep scooter, back to sleep, just a bad dream.

    Theresa May will visit Turkey on Saturday for talks with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Downing Street has said.

    The prime minister is expected to discuss trade, defence and security.

    Mrs May is likely to fly to Ankara from the US, where she is meeting President Trump on Friday, Number 10 said.

    It will be Mrs May's first visit to Turkey as PM and comes in the wake of Mr Erdogan's clampdown on opponents after the failed coup in July 2016.

    'Indispensable partner'

    Asked whether Mrs May will raise concerns over the clampdown during her talks with Mr Erdogan and Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, a Number 10 spokesman said: "We have been clear in our support for Turkey's democracy and institutions since the coup last summer.

    "The PM will take this opportunity to reiterate our support for that, but we've also been clear that Turkey's response to that must be proportionate and of course we will continue to raise those issues.

    "The visit will reflect the fact that Turkey is an indispensable partner and a close ally for the UK on many issues of global importance, including trade, security and defence."

    It also comes after 39 people were killed in an attack on a New Year's Eve party in a nightclub in Istanbul.

    So-called Islamic State it was behind the attack and the militant group was linked to at least two other attacks in Turkey last year.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Strange the EU talks to Associate EU member Turkey since 1963 and its a dialogue.

    The UK talks to Turkey and its the start of a Police state.

    Do you guys realise how foolish you sound?

    Strange, I don't think the UK will spend 54 years wooing Turkey, maybe that many days...

    Germany would literally turn itself inside out if the state returned to snooping on individuals to the extent the UK is currently engaging.

    The UK's ‘national security’ plan? It's a blueprint for a police state

    I can't decide whether it apathy or ignorance.

    Unfortunately they don't, hence the continued rantings.

    Free comedy though.
