From Mandy Cole

Not a day goes by without seeing the arrest of a Government official or policemen involved in corruption, but who is doing the arresting? Is the corrupt arresting the corrupted? Once arrested the sickeningly corrupt judicial system takes over(a fox guarding the chicken house) then proceeds to trounce the words Truth, Honesty and Justice into the mire.

What does it say about a country whose only contribution to its citizens consist entirely of lies and deceit, where greed, organized crime and fear of intimidation is meticulously cultivated to inflict devastating hardship on the innocent whose only crime is to want a better way of life, a life that rewards hard work and honesty,a life that protects the innocent and punishes the guilty, not a life where the person with the biggest stick has the power over life and death and everything in between.

The Chicago mob style mentality that sees people gunned down on the streets in broad daylight has to be addressed,we no longer live in the period where the bullet can snuff out the life of democracies, history tells us that regimes where organized crime is allowed to strangle the life out of its communities can only lead to misery and deprivation.

The current government can if it has the tenacity and the will power turn this great country around and make it a beacon of its European counterparts, to make it a country that its ancestors would have been proud of, a country where corruption was kicked out and resigned to hells dustbin, a country that gave life back to the people who served her throughout her glorious past, the people who sowed and toiled at the land to make it fit for its inhabitants, the builders and craftsman who created such wonderful monuments that dot the Bulgarian landscape, the inventors and designers that contributed so much to the worlds modernization,achievements that were crafted out of honest hard work.

The criminal element in their pursuit of greed and power are like parasites feeding off other peoples hard work,it is not for them to work,toil,create or design.. No they want to suck the life out of the country by destroying from within, the centuries old traditions of 'you reap what you sow' has now been replaced by 'Corruption Incorporated' and its affect on the country is eroding the very foundations on which it was built. How do you slay this dragon with a thousand heads?... With a thousand swords..if that's what it takes? Because have no doubt if this dragon called corruption is not slain or at the very least put to sleep nobody in the Kingdom is safe.
