Advert Travel Gazette

TRAVEL GAZETTE – MORE than 12 million Turkish citizens are planning to move to Britain when the country joins the European Union, the Daily Express in London reports.


According to ‘an explosive poll’ commissioned for the paper, almost 16 per cent of Turkish adults said they would consider re-locating to the UK once their country becomes a full member of the EU.

The poll, which saw more than 2,600 adults interviewed across all 27 provinces of Turkey, showed most of those keen to come to Britain are either unemployed or students  “raising the prospect of a migrant influx which would place an unprecedented strain on the UK’s struggling public services, including the NHS”.

A referendum is being held on Thursday, 23 June to decide whether Britain should leave or remain in the European Union.
