Alan Kurdi refugee boat named

My comment to the information which I have found recently that a (German) boat was named after Alan Kurdi: Refugee boat named in honour of Alan Kurdi more than three years after Syrian boy died at sea... (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/alan-kurdi-refugee-rescue-boat-mediterranean-syria-sea-eye-a8773361.html)

Alan (Abdullah) Kurdi family tried to escape from Turkey but failed and his body was wash out in Turkey. There is a EU-Turkey deal' on (stopping) migrants masterminded by Germany. The deal costs EU-taxpayer 6 billions EUR. If some Germans want more foreigners in their country they better will name a train (zug in German) from Stambul to Munich than a boat. They also should persuade their "mutter" to end the deal with president Erdogan. The train could for example be called Abdullah-Kurdi-Express (AKE).

The fact that Kurdi was a Turkish Kurd changes nothing. If Germany regards Turkish Kurds as war refugees-- as Turkish government in fact fights them--no problem to guarantee (all) of them appropriate status (before bording them to the above mentioned AKE Zug). BTW president Erdogan will be more than happy: he will get rid of Kurds (it is called ethic cleansing btw and is regarded as a sort of a war crime) with the hands of German plain fools (who regards themself of course as sensitive, tolerant etc...).

GDP per capita in purchasing power standards of EU member states

While GDP per capita is mainly an indicator reflecting the level of economic activity, Actual Individual Consumption (AIC) per capita is an alternative indicator better adapted to describe the material welfare situation of households.

GDP and AIC per capita in PPS, EU27 = 100
