Turkey?

Turkey is not in Europe aside from half of Istanbul. The word "Asia" was invented to describe Anatolia. It is also debatable whether it is in the Middle East either.

What about it?

Who considers Cyprus to be in the Middle East?

I don't imagine that it is themselves nor the Arabs.

It is listed on Wikipedia as being part of the 'Traditional' Middle East.

No, about 5% of Turkey's not inconsiderable area is in Europe.

Maybe so but Wikipedia is hardly the last word on anything.

It is certainly in West Asia. But whilst the Middle East is in West Asia not everything in West Asia is part of the Middle East.

My sources tell me about 5% - around the same size as Belgium.

And, incidentally, about 10% of Turkey's population live in the European part.

Belgium: 30,528 km2

Eastern Thrace: 23,764 km2 (out of 783,562 km2 total or 3.03%)

There is a better argument for saying that Russia is in Asia.

If there were a chance of returning a Lib Dem candidate locally then maybe and if virtually my entire life right now were not taken up with work and the increasing demands a special needs child is placing on me and the family then maybe again ...

There's all that handball to watch/tweet about too.
