Authorities in the town of Kustendil ordered Monday that a scandalous billboard of Bulgaria's famed Roma gay and popfolk star Azis and his partner should be removed from the central crossing it is placed at.

The poster, which shows the new silicone breasts of the singer, advertises the fourth Bulgarian broadcast television channel TV2 to be launched on November 25.

The producers have big hopes for the primetime show hosted by Azis will compete for TV ratings against the country's most popular late night show, hosted by Slavi Trifonov on bTV.

Kustendil's Mayor Petar Paunov said that if the company, which hired the billboard fails to take it down soon, the municipality is to complete that task.

The focus of the new TV channel will be on entertainment shows, with a smattering of reality TV programming, including Donald Trump's The Apprentice, as well as news.

Although TV2 does not hold a national broadcast licence, it will bypass that requirement since it has 27 regional broadcast licences.

It has a programming licence, which it received in 2000 and is valid until 2010.

Currently, Bulgaria has three broadcast channels - state television BNT, News Corp.'s bTV and Nova TV, owned by Greek media group Antenna.

Media reports have claimed Krassimir Gergov, Bulgaria's advertising mogul, is behind the new channel.

Vas,

For the record, my pigmentally-blessed muckas all loathe any form of tokenism or political correctness... same as I do!

They are opposed to any appoitments based upon so-called 'positive discrimination' grounds! If you are good enough... you're good enough whether thou art pink, blue, purple, or orange!

My mates actually despise black people who seek to advance on racial grounds. They see that lot as an embarrassment!

To be fair, most blacks in England have assimilated rather well into our society. Most are born and bred English people and cause no problems. They are the descendants of the Caribbean arrivals in the late forties, fifties and sixties who have always been friendly, eager to improve themselves, light-hearted, and generally wonderful folks!

It's some of the extremists of Pakistani descent that are not assimilating but it's religion (I hate all religions) that is causing them to behave in an aggressive manner! The Sikhs and most people of Indian ancestry are all right. They are predominantly bankers, engineers, execs, Mathematicians and other such! They have top jobs and uphold great family values!

I'd much rather be dark. I'm lucky to have a sexy, gorgeous bird! She's fifty-eight and I am thirty-five! She's 6'2" and irresistible. She can tan beautifully. Goes somewhat copper but not too dark... Just perfect! I'm lucky to have her!

All my black-as-the-ace-of-spade mates who are sound as a pound and with a great sense of humour have sexy blond birds. I'm lucky that me own bird prefers me for I know many birds like the length and girth of the darker variety.

Quite frankly, skin colour is totally irrelevant! It's what's in your heart that really matters! The rest is BS!

Don't fret it, okay? A lot of dark people would like to be in your skin condition...pale white.

Utter codswallop, me ol' china!

Your skin colour (whiteness is illusionary, by the way) determines nothing in society.

I have mates who are black as the ace of spade but they own one million quid mansions and drive top-of-the-range motas (ASTON, LEXUS, you name it) and they rule their organisations that are predominantly filled with pale-skinned employees.

Those who work hard will succeed whatever their hue. I couldn't tan for shit but if I looked like Wesley Snipes, Poitier or Denzel, I'd be a sex god! Instead, I am a pale cunt who burns like a lobster every single time the sun decides to shag me skin!

No, Head Gasket! DP is no bloke... she's a bird... more like a cuchy bint! A condescending, self-righteous Canadian sock-cooker mong!

Bless her!

As for Blighty... 'loaf' 'ere' couldn't be 'butter', Larrrr!

black is beautiful, tan is grand, but white is the color of the big ruling class man...
