Caller Wants To Give Iain An Earful Over Turkey

7 March 2016, 17:33

Is Iain Dale Wrong About Turkey?

After Iain said Turkey should be kept out of the EU, this caller couldn't get on the phone quick enough to "put him right".


A senior Turkish diplomat says keeping the country out of the EU is adding to the migrant crisis. Tough, says Iain Dale, you're not ready to join.

In this short and stinging bit of radio, Dale lays out a list of reasons why Turkey isn't fit to join the European Union - despite what Cem I┼čik says.

"When your country operates like a normal Western democracy, when it stops imprisoning journalists, when it actually stops illegal oil flowing across the border from Syria, then perhaps we might even consider you for EU membership," said Iain.

Later in the hour, an irate Ron phoned up. The LBC listener couldn't believe what Iain had said and was determined to "set him right". See how that went with the video at the top of the page.
