Bulgarian Socialists 'Large Retailers' Bid Derided on Twitter
The idea of lawmakers from the ruling Bulgarian Socialist Party, BSP, to ban the large retail chains in the country from working on weekend days in order to boost smaller stores has become a laughing stock on Twitter.
There is even a new social network hashtag - #БСПидеи (BSPideas), publishing scores of new proposals created in the lively debate.
