Today's Quote: A Handful of Badgering Sorosoids
"I cannot allow a handful of Sorosoids to badger us while we are trying to solve important problems."
Nationalist leader Valeri Simeonov defending his move to send a warning email to a Bulgarian living in New York in which he tells here expat communities should not interfere with the legislative process:
"Could you have heard of the 136 polling stations opened in Turkey by the time the new Electoral Code was accepted which poured in between 60 000 and 100 000 votes?"
"Could you have heard that 8000 Bulgarians in the US in Canada voted in the last [Bulgarian] general election, while the other 200-300 000 were out to pick mushrooms?"
"You have not... But as no-one prevents you from arranging your personal life at your convenience, do not badger s as we are trying to find a solution to 25-year problems created by rootless politicians and rootless, whimsical, pseudo-compatriots."
The row follows amendments to Bulgaria's Electoral Code that introduce restrictions to the number of polling stations outside the country. Under the initial proposal, however, a ban would have been enforced on opening even a single polling station outside diplomatic missions.
