I haven't seen any of these adverts, Jerry. Are they on TV? I did hear they were planning some for London Transport.


I saw one on Facebook, it was a poster in the London underground.


Was this definitely a recent advert? I'm not on Facebook.

I know they had attempted this advertising campaign once before, several years ago, and it was abandoned after protests to London Transport. But it would surprise me if Boris the Turkophile can do the decent thing and prohibit this.

Any moves to clean up these criminals from advertising their stolen wares?

Thanks, Jerry.

It needs a dedicated thread for maximum exposure - thanks again!

Meanwhile, the previously well-hidden face of Turkey is proving harder to conceal :


Tourists shun resorts from Egypt to Turkey in wake of Isis attacks
Sunday 17 January 2016

Turkey’s tourism sector is bracing for a similar shock after an Isis-orchestrated suicide attack killed 10 people in the heart of Istanbul’s historic Sultanahmet district, outside the Blue Mosque, this month. Most of the dead came from Germany, the country which sends the most visitors to Turkey – 5.2 million last year – and cancellations are expected, worsening an already bleak year.

Up to 4.5 million Russians were already expected to change holiday plans after the Turkish military shot down a Russian jet that strayed into Turkish airspace on a bombing mission over Syria, and military operations against Kurdish insurgents in the south-east have added to a sense of crisis.

“Things are getting worse for Turkey’s tourism sector, with crisis after crisis erupting before the last one is resolved,” lamented Hürriyet Daily News columnist Günes Kömürcüler. “The situation is so bad that we should simply accept this year as a ‘lost year’ for tourism.”

I guess that's why Turkey has desperately tried to promote our poor illegally occupied Cyprus, for tourists to exploit and feed the hungry Turks.

Oh dear, terrorists target Ankara and once again far too many innocent people killed and injured because of Turkey's devilish behaviour.


Police said a car bomb was detonated near military lodgings, sending dark smoke billowing into the sky.

At least two or three buses and several cars are believed to have been set on fire. Ambulances were seen rushing towards the scene.

Ankara's governor said early estimates put the number of dead at five and the number injured at 10. It was not clear if that was expected to rise.

Your stupidity is a bottomless pit.

The target may have been the military, but:

The explosion occurred in central Ankara, in close proximity to the buildings of the prime ministry, the general chief of staff, the Turkish parliament and the defence ministry.


.... were no passers-by in Central Ankara killed?

At least 28 people have been killed and at least 60 injured in a rush-hour car bombing

- happy now?

This attack openly targets our entire nation.

I will give e you credit for not going so far as saying a Good Turk is a Dead Turk though as Oracle you did support the right (supposedly on Free speech grounds) of someone to use the phrase ΤΟΥΡΚΟΣ ΚΑΛΟΣ ΜΟΝΟ ΝΕΚΡΟΣ in their signature -

I know it's never good news for us whenever Turkey decides to take matters into their own hands, but, I sincerely hope this strikes deep into this evil government's pockets! Something's got to make them give up their stranglehold on Europe and Cyprus.

ANKARA (Reuters) - Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu unveiled a plan on Monday to support Turkey's tourism sector, hit by tensions with Russia and domestic insecurity, including a 255 million lira ($87 mln) grant and a facility to allow tourism firms to restructure debt.

Tourism finances more than half of Turkey's current account deficit, based on figures from 2014, which is seen as one of the country's biggest economic weaknesses.

TUI, the world's largest tour operator, this month reported a 40 percent drop in summer bookings to Turkey due to safety concerns.

As Erdogan's troops renew their attacks and curfews on Kurdish villages, news of more bombs in Ankara:

At least 27 people have been killed and 75 wounded in a large explosion in Turkey's capital, the governor's office has said.

The blast happened in central Ankara around 6.45pm local time, according to the office of Guldenay Sonumut.

"The area where the explosion happened is like the centre of Ankara," he said in a statement.
