Another $3B down the toilet...

Not content with flushing billions down the toilet in Ukraine, the EU will pay Turkey $3B to mitigate the consequences of a problem that Turkey caused.

If only that was the only thing they did, they will also probably institute a visa-free regime between turkey-EU.

Hello cheap labour that will put many people out of work in "prosperous" countries like NL.

The wealthy will be able to have their grounds, their pools and their toilets cleaned for very little money. Of course, the taxpayers will subsidize this.

Ironically, it's the same figure that Putin loaned Yanukovych... but many called that a bribe.
