Hmm,
Why should a referendum on restoring the death penalty in Turkey constitute a break with European values???

Man draws death sentence for 2015 slaying of five on Awaji Island Japan. No problem with European values?  The number of death-row inmates in Japan in 2016 was 129 by Dec. 31.

May I remind ya that Capital punishment is a legal penalty in the United States.  No problem with European values?

Death sentence in Israel is allowed only during wartime and only for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, crimes against the Jewish people, treason, and certain crimes under military law.
The current Arab-Israel conflict is considered a war...
No problem with European values?

European values, not Japan,Israel, or the USA......The Donald congratulated Turkeys leader.


The death penalty has been completely abolished in all European countries except for Belarus. The absolute ban on the death penalty is enshrined in both the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (EU) and the European Convention on Human Rights of the Council of Europe, and is thus considered a central value. Of all modern European countries, San Marino and Portugal were the first to abolish capital punishment, whereas only Belarus still practice capital punishment in some form or another. In 2012, Latvia became the last EU Member State to abolish capital punishment in wartime.

One more time specially for you: governments that still apply the death  so-called "penalty" are uncivilised, barbarous, backward. Israel does not apply it though Palestinians do. Jpan does apply it, though very rarely. The U.S.A. does apply it and Europe does not approve. We do not want the U.S.A. in the E.U.

What proportion of the 51% are AI votes such as we see when BBS systems get predictable results 24/7 and then the outcome is reversed for just one day when the system is flooded with votes in the space of 10 minutes?
