Blatant hypocrisy as EU grants more taxpayers' money to Turkish president

 Debate: Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA III), European Parliament, Strasbourg March 26th

The EU is paying "scant regard" to the changing reality surrounding it, West Midlands MEP James Carver told the parliament, as the race towards for ever closer union hurtles on.

He said: "Take for example, Turkey. Earlier this month you passed a report acknowledging the backsliding of basic rights there. Yet legislation keeps the door open for their EU membership and the transfer of taxpayers' money to President Erdogan’s Turkey at the very same time that you refuse to acknowledge their incompatibility with your own fundamental values.

Yet you criticise, Hungary and Poland. Can’t you see your blatant hypocrisy?

How much damage must you do before understanding your failure to best represent your citizens’ concerns?
