It's obvious that Turkey has to put up the price of alcohol, or turn the country into a funeral parlour for Russian tourists...

I read the article - interesting that it doesn't even mention that those tourists were poisoned by metil (technical liquid that Turks added to whisky that they served to tourists)- the owner of the yacht is arrested and investigation is going on, yet this Turkish newspaper tries to make an impression that it was just alcohol poisoning..."truth" and "journalism" turkish style ! And they want to join EU !

they serve alcohol to all tourists - they consider themselves to be secular state where Islam is separated from the state, but the problem here is that they (turks) try to blame victims as the article makes impression that those people died because of alcohol abuse (exessive consumption),but not poisoning by methanol (as anatopsy revealed)- 30 mililiters of methanol is considered a lethal dose - so as only 3 people out of 70 died shows that amount of a "drink" consumed was minimal, I would say symbolical - interesting what would be results of investigation.

I would have no objection with Turkey joining the EU. It would probably benefit the organisation better than Romania, Bulgaria or Greece! Or even Ukraine which some people contemplate as a future member; now that would be a catastrophe in my book!

I think that a precondition of joining a group is at least some respect to those people who comprise that group -turks as moslems despise Europeans and European culture, they (turks) deep in their hearts consider europeans to be pigs, let's say truth about that - so I think it is good that they don't want to join EU.

One of the preconditions before Turkeys can join Europe should be, not to serve meta-alcohol to visitors.
As we all know, Russian khokhozniks will drink just about anything.
