    The fragrant Ursula handled things perfectly and left the pair of them looking like the puerile, poorly brought up oiks they are.

    I think they are worried about a massive influx of hairy Turkish faithful taking their new found freedom to protest about bacon sandwiches, pork sausages and beer being freely available.

    ^ and, historically speaking, France remains strongly opposed to Turkish membership. De Gaulle was very opposed and it seems the French position remains essentially the same.



    French President Nicolas Sarkozy says he maintains his opposition to Turkey's membership in the European Union but has proposed the Muslim-majority nation instead become a privileged partner of the 27-member bloc. During a brief visit to Turkey Friday, Sarkozy expressed his belief that a compromise could be worked out. But Ankara has ruled this out, saying it is only interested in full membership.

    Sarkozy arrived in the Turkish capital, Ankara, in his role as the current head of the Group of 20 leading and emerging economies. Even before his arrival, though, a fierce diplomatic exchange mired his visit in controversy. In an interview with a Turkish news channel ahead of his visit, Sarkozy said Turkey is part of the Middle East rather than Europe. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan strongly criticized the French president for the brevity of his six-hour visit, while President Abdullah Gul chastised his French counterpart for his opposition to Turkey's EU accession bid.

    Gul, speaking at a joint press conference with Sarkozy, said he told the French leader all EU members should contribute in a positive way to the accession process. Gul insisted EU membership remains a priority for Turkey, saying this is a very sensitive subject for his country and that "artificial obstructions" must not hinder Ankara's accession talks.

    Sarkozy is currently vetoing five out of 35 membership chapters Turkey must complete to join the EU. The French leader's strong opposition to Turkey's membership bid has been responsible in part for bringing the process to a virtual standstill. Sarkozy acknowledged the two countries' separate views, but said they will continue to work together.

    But Russel that surrender Monkey (De Gaulle) who the UK put up through the war also declined the UK's entry to the EU. Essentially what you have to consider with the Frogs and EU countries is that they have been brittle since WWII, the Krauts own the Frogs and the rest inc the Swedes are all slaves to the Krauts which explains the anti-UK feeeling here. Its sad we sacrificed so much to be so vilified.

    I guess the local chav brigade are also misogynists, so no surprise at the comments.

    Nah, not anti-UK . . . rather anti-chav drunk fuckwits like you and Joe/Shitty as you don't see any other Brits racing to your defence, nor do they feel slighted.

    Italy’s Draghi slams Erdoğan as a ‘dictator’ after Sofagate
    Italy’s Prime Minister Mario Draghi called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan a “dictator” and criticized him for relegating European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to a sofa during an official visit on Tuesday.
    “I felt very sorry for the humiliation that European Commission President von der Leyen had to undergo,” Draghi said during a press conference Thursday evening.
    During the official visit in Ankara, Erdoğan offered European Council President Charles Michel a chair next to him, leaving a visibly irritated von der Leyen to sit on a nearby couch — an incident that has since gone viral online and been dubbed Sofagate.

    Not very tactful from Charles Michael to sit down prior his colleague lady (or any lady) has been seated...

    I am sorry to disappoint you (but yes, that's the stereotype view British - French), without de Gaulle - and his extraordinary personal effort - the WW2 would not be with the same results. And that's all after the usual resistance of Churchill and Roosevelt up to the end of the war.

    And that after the destroying of the French Navy at French Algeria Mers-El-Kebir by Royal Navy where over 1,000 French Navy men died, just few weeks after both nations brotherly retreated at Dunkirk by a kind care of Hitler (who had faced his first resistance of his angry generals not understanding his relinquishment). After this knife in de Gaulle's back he nearly had given up, completely finished, the perfect Navy was his great hope...

    ^ He's right, though, that the Brits big themselves up all the time and would have been annihilated had the Americans not entered the war. France and de Gaulle . . . offered more resistance than the British could have, faced with the German military machine.

    At the end of the day it was good that Germany lost the war. Good for everyone, especially Germans

    Thank you . . . but I didn't make it past Lieutenant. (Plus you left out the following sentence - something which is lost on Brits)

    You're making the same kind of dumb generalisations the brit chav contingent make, and basically sinking to their level.

    I'm well aware of the truth of your second sentence. It is also pretty bloody obvious really.

    Though it is a concern that there is something in the German make up that let it happen.

    If you really want to run with the 'questionable national characteristics' thing, that is.

    One thing is for sure - if they let Turkey join as a full member, the whole of Europe will be looking at Brexit Britain in envy.

    It's called making a point, cyrille, in a not-so-serious manner
