UK’s Brexit Vote Marks ‘Bad Day for Europe’, Bulgarian PM Borisov Says
The UK’s decision to exit the European Union marks “a bad day for Europe”, Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has said.
“I respect the choice of their people, although from now on it [the people] will be severely split,” Borisov told reporters in Sofia on Friday after the UK voted in a referendum to leave the EU after 43 years in the bloc.
Asked whether by saying “bad day for Europe” he meant a possible disintegration of the EU, Borisov said that these were very strong words.
“From now on the EU must show that it can do without Britain […] and we have to start thinking about Europe without them. Any negotiations about a special status should not be held because they will break the union apart," Borisov said.
“When the EU is weaker, you see how the markets react […] the pound is falling. Hence, there will be consequences for everyone,” Borisov added.

Speaking of ASIA and China that’s where it all starts and ends!
Education is the solution and NOT separation!
The UK, Bulgaria and the EU needs a major overhaul of their education system in order to achieve prosperity!

Indeed, the Brexit was (will be?) a false move. The UK will now try to bribe eastern Europeans through trading the status of immigrants already present there in order to get acceptance to their further participation in the common market at no cost, but hopefully no one wil get such "glass beads" for the price of further decomposition of the European Union, Europe's historical best achievement. The British entered a dangerous area, with Scotland's and North Ireland's assumed secession England will become a tiny country with the area of about 130k square kilometers, no more than a shadow of former empire, where "sun never went down".
worth mentioning also...
The time for Europe was to UNITE not divide!
Here speaking of competition…. and Asia and China, some more reality, wake up calls and business opportunities for the EU.
Check the links below, open your minds….
(of course the Bulgarian farming and agriculture now is dilapidated…)
The EU was the only hope for Europe to compete against China/Asia...
It's all well written and described thwere but you are way too stupid to understand it.
Anyways Britain is cooked and the worrisome trend here is that any other nationalist parties in the EU may follow therefore completely destroying the union and the economy of the old continent...
BTW needles to mention that even if the UK stayed in the EU China would still surpass it technologically and economically.
What we are trying to underline and clarify here is that the dignity, capabilities and influence of Europeans is way better when in an EU union!
Let me mention again that the EU is the best thing, which happened to Europe, EVER!
The EU gave the chance and ability to the old small, stagnated and fractured European markets and economies to unite and grow into the largest economy of the world!
The free democratic movement of goods and people through the union was the noblest achievement of humanity!
Nationalism, Nazism, protectionism and conservatism are an infectious “disease” with which infectious spreading agents like Nigel Lafarge, Boris Johnson, Donald Trump and etc. are infecting, polarizing and destroying societies.
Immigration was a major tool and influence used to manipulate the British and American voters. Ironically enough all that instability, terrorism and mass migration in the Islamic/Arab world was caused namely by the US and Britain and their war in Iraq.
The rest of the world should hold the US and Britain responsible and make them accommodate all those millions of Syrian refugees. You shouldn’t be able to escape responsibility just by changing presidents, prime ministers or abandoning and leaving Unions.
On the economic side Britain was way better with the EU. They enjoyed a record low unemployment for the last several years, stable pound and economy and skyrocketing real estate prices in London. Now after the separation all of this will be gone in the matter of months. Britain is not a very competitive economy on its own and it doesn’t have the capabilities to produce much of anything lately. Jaguar, Land Rover, Mini Cooper and etc. are all gone into foreign ownership and the Island economy is desperately hoping on tourism and Chinese, Indian investments.
A lot can be said but the bottom line here is that Britain will never again be able to enjoy the quality of life it had during EU membership. It was the worst decision to separate from your European roots and family and to go great distance back into segregation and isolationism!
