The political problems here are escalating as various factions try to protect or take advantage of the exposure of scurrilous behaviour by some of the governing heirarchy and their families. There are many newspapers here all of which seem to be aligned to, if not actually printed by, the parties concerned. My long serving ex pat friends tell me they have seen it all before but sadly, my Turkish is nowhere good enough to seek out the wood for the trees, so we wait nervously as the Turkish Lire and the Stock Market collapse and anticipate raging inflation and high interest rates after the March elections.
Are the wheels coming off?
