Agent Pick-a-dildo,

You forgot your medication today?! Take your pills please.

Eurostat is using exclusively data from the National Statistics Institute when it comes to Bulgarian numbers. So why these data are "lies" is beyond my understanding (and you didn't explain also why, and what is according to your statistical expertise the right figure).

But to ask for a Russian invasion just because you don't like a figure in a statistic (which underestimates the real figures of youth unemployment in Bulgaria considerably) is at least entertaining and "innovative". Usually, the Russian army gets going in order to "protect the Russian minority" in countries they are invading. So maybe Ser-gay should call his gay friend in the Kremlin and tell him that he feels threatened?! By baaaaad statistics, masterminded by the Gerbera-SS? LOL

I have read a lot of BS in this Novinite forum, but yours is really First Class BS.

Eurostat only print lies on behalf of their political masters GERB. When will our government finally realize that these fascists want to destroy our democratic republic and install the SS GERB thugs back in power so they can repress and subvert the Bulgarian people? Oresharski and Stanishev must invite the red army to police our streets to prevent a similar coup detat to that engineered by the EU in Ukraine.
