Re: Turks Skeptical about home sales to foreigners

I have ALWAYS thought that way. Behind the smiles etc apart from a walking cash machine whats the REAL feeling about foreigners. I count and always will count myself as a tourist regardless of time spent there.

Do have to raise a smile though at some on TLF being concerned about Xenophobia......

Re: Turks Skeptical about home sales to foreigners

My mother's family are from Wiltshire and my father's family are from the North of England, we lived in Wiltshire and spent most holidays up North. One thing that stands out in my mind is how some northerners referred to southerners as soft and southerners said people up North are hard. There were various other labels attributed to people from the North & South.

Football supporters of one team often hate people who support other teams. It is all rather tribal. So it seems like it is the same in the UK some people are not very tolerant of difference.

in the uk tolerant or not theres not much you can do about it but there are laws that protect foreigners...even to the detriment of the local population...its not quite the same here..where could you get anybody here to take a compliant that you were being discriminated about because you were a foreigner

Re: Turks Skeptical about home sales to foreigners

Plenty of zenophobics back in britain.....the fear of strangers is natural..espicially when they don't speak your language...İ was made very welcome in İzmir and my sale was relatively easy...i have contact with 100s of kids and parents in my job and have never had a negative feeling...Charlotte, Urla is a village and not like İzmir the city...

Re: Turks Skeptical about home sales to foreigners

It's Sigacik Greg.

Izmir is of course a big city, and I like to think it's a tolerant place, however I know that some prejudice exists regarding certain groups of people (at the moment, Syrians).

I wish it was the truth that the UK laws protect people, my husband was subjected to terrible racist abuse here in the UK and the law did not help us. Eventually after installing CCTV and years of misery we won an abuse case against the police because it was proved that they had not protected us - what did we get out of this - nothing really it did not take away the pain only time has helped us heal. Racism is every where and in every organisation including the legal system.

Metropolitan Police still institutionally racist 20 years after Stephen Lawrence murder, black police leaders say - Home News - UK - The Independent

We can only hope that people will become less fearful and become more tolerant and accepting of differences.
