Quote of the day 20th April 2017
"No, May is not like Erdogan.
Theresa May’s snap election has caused the Guardianista class to lose their minds. Martin Kettle writes that
'Theresa May in Downing Street sounded like Turkey’s authoritarian president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan'.
This is just bonkers. Erdogan is an Islamist autocrat who rules under a state of emergency, jailing political opponents, arresting journalists, controlling the airwaves, censoring social media and passing a law which could see him stay in power until 2029.
Theresa May has called an election."
