If Greece exits the eurozone, writes The Tell, the EU should consider replacing it with Turkey. The country's speedy growth and youthful demographics would help a union sorely in need of both. One wonders if the reason Turkey's economy is perky (even overheating) is because it's not part of the eurozone. The EU may want the country, but has anybody checked with Ankara?

    We were unable to get a hold of Turkey for comment, though the lights were on.

    To European peoples, Turkey has been an enemy for centuries. Ask Greeks, Italians, Spaniards, Austrians, Bulgarians, and so on. No one in Europe feels that Turkey belongs to Europe, nor want them. While Turks have been asking for years to be admitted to the European Community. This "news" is SA's typical patronizing and arrogant ignorance of all European things.
