As was predicted, Turkey's autocrat has secured the role he coveted as president
, thanks to the election rigging you can be sure he mastered behind the scenes. And he's already amassed plenty of support among his fellow Muslims there:
Mr Erdogan has built huge support among the country's conservative Muslims and provincial constituents, with his economic reforms tripling the per capita income of millions of Turkey's poor to £5,900 per year and bringing development to inland villages that had previously languished as backwaters.
Ah, I can see what's been going on: he's given welfare - or certainly something similar - to much of the Muslim population in Turkey. And you can be sure Christians didn't get much of that income, if at all. That's the strategy of these sinister Muslim politicians. The paper says Turkey's been prospering during Erdogan's regime, but they'd already been prior to his ascension, and a report I watched on France24 said their fortunes have been dwindling since 2007. So it's not like Turkey's bound to remain economically viable under their modern despot.
