Widespread evidence of massive ballot stuffing in Ankara and Istanbul, yet no mention in the British press. Why?

Not much mention there of bags of uncounted ballots in Ankara, nor election bags sent to the municipal waste disposal.

I reckon it's all you are going to get, unless protests get more noticeable. In general, UK media coverage of Turkey is much less than the country's size and importance would seem to warrant.
