Bulgarian Extremist MPs Wreak Havoc in Brussels Restaurant
Drunken MPs from Bulgaria’s ultranationalist Ataka (Attack) party have staged a scandal in a renowned Brussels restaurant, Bulgarian media have revealed.
Over 20 Ataka lawmakers behaved disorderly at the Belgian capital’s La Maison du Cygne (The House of the Swan) restaurant, disturbing other guests and attempting to flee the place without paying their bill, bTV informs.
“When they arrived, they started ordering considerable amounts of champagne and grappa. They had too much alcohol at one point,” the restaurant’s manager has told bTV.
The manager said the Bulgarian MPs threw champagne corks at restaurant employees and destroyed food that was prepared for other customers.
The lawmakers refused to pay a EUR 1530 bill, forcing employees to block them inside the restaurant until the bill was eventually paid.
Last week, Ataka’s lawmakers embarked on a series of antics at the European Parliament in Brussels, instead of participating in a no-confidence vote against cabinet at home. The official reason for the Brussels visit was to demand an excuse from German EPP MEP Doris Pack, who called Ataka xenophobic and anti-European.
The MPs were unable to enter the European Parliament as no MEP would agree to meet with them.
Ataka’s controversial leader Volen Siderov, an author of two anti-Semitic books, has stirred a number of scandals over the last few years. In 2010, he was detained in Germany after he hurled racist insults at the attendants of a Lufthansa flight.
He was recently spotted carrying a gun to the Bulgarian Parliament.
Even though it is not officially in power, Siderov’s extremist party is a key ally of the country’s fragile Socialist-led coalition government.

The restaurant manager should have called the police, and then perhaps Psycho Siderov and his fellow Psychos could have all been locked up to spend a nice cosy night in jail to sober up and resume taking their medications.
These Maggots are the cornerstone of the current BG "government". I'd like to know who were the over 4% of the idiots that voted for them?
I certainly didn't leave a tip - in fact I left before the waiter could bring the bill..........I knew my hero Volen would be the perfect gentleman and pick up the tab :)
It's clear that this report is simply libellously untrue - everyone knows that Ataka members are courteous and cultured intellectuals who dress and conduct themselves in the best possible taste....... ;)
Do people even realize that this Bulgarian party does not represent Bulgaria? They're just a part of the whole. You can't judge a meal by a single ingredient, now can you? Last time I checked, Bulgaria is full of bright students who unfortunately are more than willing to leave Bulgaria and work for another country. Unfortunately. It is people like Volen Siderov who urge our youngsters to leave. And let's be honest, a lot of Europeans have acted inappropriately, but no one equates their behaviour with that of a WHOLE country. Sure, Bulgaria's political system suffers a lot, but no one has the right to label Bulgarians as 'pigs' and no one has the right to kick us out of EU ( not that we're willing to stay, anyway. Bulgarians saw nothing good from joining the EU ). The point is that before pointing fingers at other countries, pay attention to the flaws in yours. And I'm afraid that I'm very disappointed by Bulgarians who aren't proud of being Bulgarians. Bulgaria isn't just politics and judging it only by that shows how shallow and close minded a person can be.
We aren't proud of those who represent us, but we're definitely proud of our country, its history, its nature and its bright children.
P.S. Do us a favour and rid us of this disgusting EU that has done nothing but harm us.
