The EU and Turkey - could it and should it become a member?

This clear statement from British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw is very welcome, so far as I am concerned.

Attempts by some politicians, exemplified by former French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing, to dismiss the possibility of Turkey ever becoming a member of the European Union have always struck me as quite despicable.
