Long memories in that part of the world you know:
All we need is for Athens to sack a few thousand more public sector workers, lop a few billions more off their pensions, chop more benefits, collect more taxes, and perhaps the problem will go away.

While it\’s all true, Boris\’ granpa was an Ottoman official, a Turk in the eyes of many.
They won\’t like that at all.
