Bulgarian PM: Some Countries Riot, Burn Own Cities, We Don't
While some countries are facing violent and destructive social unrest, Bulgarians are hard at work under the rule of center-right GERB cabinet, said Bulgarian PM Boyko Borisov Sunday.
During a visit to Varna, the Bulgarian PM also painted a picture of the country as an island of financial stability amid failing Eurozone countries with high deficits.
Borisov also recalled the protests in Bulgaria during the 1995-6 local economic crisis.
"Bulgarians then went on strikes, made barricades and burned tyres while others were working. Now its is we who are working, while other countries burn their own cities and cause problems for themselves," stated the Bulgarian PM.
He most probably was referring to the violent riots that grappled London and other major English cities during the past week.
The Bulgarian PM vowed that under his leadership the country will press on with its drive to build infrastructure and work for growth of the economy via tourism and agriculture.

It is you who is uninformed!
Firstly, let me draw your attention to all those people who scavenge in bins to find food, or items they can put to some use or make a few stotinki from to buy a loaf of bread.
Secondly, many of the 'older' generation have told me that times were BETTER under communism than they are now: they had work, food upon the table and money in their pockets!
Thirdly, there are officially over 53,000 Bulgarians living in the UK. then there are all the others living in all the other countries.
If it takes so little to make the Bulgarians happy, why are they so unhappy and so disillusioned that they run from the regime of poverty?
Frankly, I think you should renew your membership to the 'Yellow Card Club'!
"... Now its is we who are working, while other countries burn their own cities and cause problems for themselves,"
He goes on about 'agriculture' and 'tourism' but they are both essentially seasonal.
In essence, there is no employment in BG.
And yes, there has been a lot of trouble in the UK; of a sort that was mindless and destructive. But with guidance, leadership, planning, and strategic implementation of those mobs, they could have become an army... Such an army hitting the very nerve centre of London could have been catastrophic.
Is PM Boyko Borisov and his cabinet so crass that they think the peoples of BG are happy and content, that they have no pent up anger, that they appreciate being lied to and cheated out of the respect and decency they deserve?
What does the future hold for BG and its populous? How long before the long fingers of a revolt or anarchy curls round to grasp Sofia?
