Turkey’s ruling party is far from democracy.Buying vote with free coal and food is not an democratic act.Also after PM Erdogan’s angry speech to wipe out,twitter ban started promptly.Erdogan is trying to interrupt corruption allegations which spread by twitter.Also the reason why Erdogan hating social media is,he and his supporters failed to use social media like the more educated younger people. The new generation use social media with wisdom and intelligence while the supporters can only say’long live erdogan!’like cliches.

Erdogan’s aim is to create a Islamic state banning all alcohol & get rid of the Western ways spread across the Turkish youth. Erdogans wife wears a hijab. The hijab wearing Turks have around 5 children while the more Westernised Turks have on average 2 -3 children. In the end it’s the vote that counts & who has more of the population? The extreme Muslims with the so meant children bringing Turkey back and alongside the Middle Eastern countries. Shame! Boot him out.
