In Europe, a nation is besieged by perpetual referendums, vicious nationalism, and a leader with their mind set on greater power.

No this, isn't Scotland, it's Turkey!

Turkey is holding a referendum to give President Recep Erdoğan greater powers as President, a role which has until now been ceremonial.

In April, Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party hope to pass 18 amendments to the Turkish constitution, such abolishing parliamentary scrutiny of the executive, and making the president both head of government and head of state.

Erdoğan has also accused the Netherlands for carring out 'Nazi practises', for similarly blocking a Turkish rally.

The referendum on Erdoğan's power is due to be held on 16 April 2017.
