Merkel has been opposed to it for a long time. The only reason she's back at the negotiation table is the immigrant issue, probably thinking that throwing some cash at Turkey and dangling the prospects of joining the advanced union of whites will incentivize more harboring of the runaways and help ease pressure off the EU states being overrun by throngs of freeloaders.

It's Merkel, so that sounds unlikely.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has offered Turkey the prospect of support for faster progress on its bid to join the European Union in return for cooperation in stemming the flow of refugees and taking back those rejected by Europe.

British people want out or are split about it, I somehow doubt it will happen as 2 main parties are for staying in
you know all the cosy jobs at the Brussels.. I do not see them giving that up, if the referendum ever
happens though then there's a slim chance they will leave although politicians and media will make that difficult to happen imo

Nope not a death penalty here.

Thats reserved for terrorists and brutal murderers but even those haent had a death sentence enforced for more than two decades i think. Dont remember the last death sentence we had enforced.
