Turkeys voting for Christmas?

Its been all over the media this weekend, should Turkey be allowed into the club. Apparently the Germans are leading the challenge. According to EUobserver: The leader of Germany's centre-right opposition party, Angela Merkel, has written to other centre-right leaders in the EU in a bid to block Turkey's full membership of the EU, offering instead a "privileged partnership". Whilst I understand some of the misgivings, its clear that the real reasons have nothing to do with religion and everything to doing with power. The Germans will no longer be the biggest country in Europe. Can you imagine the bolshy Turks accepting the Franco-German alliance without an argument? I thought not. They will become a huge thorn in the side of federalists everywhere. We just need to wait and hope.
