    Opposition leader Deniz Baykal has responded to the much-publicized dialogue which took place between Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and an angry farmer in Mersin this weekend. In a criticism of the slang and jargon used by Erdogan in his heated exchange with the farmer, a man named Kemal Oncel, Baykal said "someone needs to rub hot pepper across the Prime Minister's mouth."

    Continuing his response to the Prime Minister's exchange with Oncel, Baykal said this: "Neither Turkey nor the world has ever witnessed a prime minister who displayed this much disrespect to a farmer and his mother. It reminds me of the old Anatolian expression, 'You have become a vizier but not a man.' The Prime Minister's insult to the farmer and his mother reminded us all of these words. I guess we shouldn't be surprised by the fact that this person, who has changed personalities, identities, personal politics, and shirts this many times has also lost his traditional prime ministerial stance."
