Maybe Boris's prizewinning pome was the last straw for the generals? They couldn't bear to see what a laughing stock Erdrogan is internationally?

It's all very well for Erdrogan to tell his supporters to go onto the streets and fight the army- he's nowhere near danger. Wherever he actually is......

I sure wouldn't risk getting my head blown off for one of the nastiest, most dictatorial heads of state currently on the world stage.

Ah, but throughout history, that's been a traditional cue for coup-launching, Lily. You wait till your enemy is out of the capital......or even better, out of the country.

It has failed.    60, mainly civilians, dead, over 1,500 soldiers arrested.     Erdogan is at Istanbul airport.    LL

I wouldn't count on anything right now, LL. It's only seemingly over because the military didn't open fire on all their fellow Turks that were called onto the streets by Edrogan.

And he's such a PoS, he's going to take revenge on the plotters.

I make no secret of the fact that I detest Edrogan, and have done for a long time; I would like nothing better than to see him thrown out of office, and Turkey returned to a secular state.

I have Turkish friends, have spend many great holidays there. I have despaired since Erdogan got his hands on power, seeing all the good Ataturk did to drag Turkey into the modern age sidelined. That fundamentalist wife of his flaunts her wearing of the veil and says it should be mandatory, despite it being an option to wear it under secular law, most Turkish women preferring wearing western clothes without the hijab. Oh, yes, he will slaughter the soldiers, probably in public. LL

I know, LL, women in Turkey had enjoyed decades of freedom and acheivement - and he's putting them back in those damned headbags, and worse.

And has everyone forgotten Edrogan demanding GERMANS be arrested for writing rude poems about him?

I think we should all be proud that we now have a Foreign Secretary that wins prizes for pomes defending freedom of speech against horrible, terrorist-loving, islamic dictators:


Challenged to submit a poem, the Mayor of London made one up on the spot - and his limerick won the competition.
He said:

‘There was a young fellow from Ankara
'Who was a terrific w******
'Till he sowed his wild oats
'With the help of a goat
'But he didn’t even stop to thankera’.


Mr Johnson, who often highlights his Turkish heritage, said: ‘All sorts of words spill forth in a great Tourette’s stream.’
Boris Johnson repeated the assertion made by comedian, Jan Böhmermann (pictured), who was prosecuted in Germany for mocking a foreign dignitary

Turkey's coup may have failed – but history shows that it won't be long before another one succeeds
Too late did Erdogan realise the cost of the role he had chosen for his country – when you can no longer trust your army, there are serious issues that need to be addressed


Well worth reading, IMO.

Turkey: Mass arrests after coup bid quashed, says PM - More at link



Some 2,839 soldiers, including high-ranking officers, have been arrested over an attempted coup that is now over, says Turkey's PM Binali Yildirim.

In a night he called a "black stain on Turkish democracy", he said 161 people had been killed and 1,440 wounded.

Explosions and gunfire were heard in Ankara, Istanbul and elsewhere overnight and thousands of Turks heeded President Erdogan's call to rise up against the coup-plotters.

It is unclear who was behind the coup.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blamed a "parallel structure", in a clear reference to Fethullah Gulen, a powerful but reclusive US-based Muslim cleric whom he accuses of fomenting unrest.

However, in a statement, Mr Gulen rejected any suggestion he had links to the events, saying he condemned "in the strongest terms, the attempted military coup in Turkey".

Some 2,745 judges have also been dismissed in the wake of the coup, state media say.

There are 41 Birmingham teachers and schoolchildren stranded at Ataturk Airport.

Oh Lord, I can think of better places, and times, to be stranded, LL - I hope things stabilise quickly, though I would suggest this is the end of Turkey as a holiday destination?

Some 2,745 judges have also been dismissed in the wake of the coup, state media say.

Hmmm.

This has happened before, 1960 Turkish coup d'état, 1971 Turkish military coup, 1980 Turkish coup d'état and 1993 alleged Turkish military coup and each time the country recovered as did the tourist trade. LL

IMO, it's not really the Turkish military that are the problem, LL, it's the increasing islamification of Turkey. What western woman in her right mind would want to go to a country that is encouraging such backward attitudes? How could you feel safe?

And don't forget, Russians previously spent mega-bucks in Turkey - they've gone elsewhere, too.

Someone in my own circle works in Turkey on a regular basis.  It is well known that Erdogan wants to be Dictator of the entire region.  

A shiver ran down my spine when I read that he would treat the people involved in the failed coup mercilessly.  I kind of doubt that because he is going to need a military.  Maybe he will humble them so they will feel like kissing his shoes?

Turkey is in for a rough ride for quite a while.

I'm so glad I vacationed there in the past as I don't think I will any time soon.

It's a chance worth taking for lone travellers, who want to see historical sites, etc, but for people who just want a nice family holiday in the sun?

No, not a chance I would take, personally.

Incidentally, that is a really good article in the Independent that you posted.  Very worthwhile.
