Today's Quote: UN, Dalai Lama and Greengroceries
"Even if we had nominated the Dalai Lama, the Bulgarian Socialist Party would have said Ms Bokova has the biggest chances."
Bulgaria's Foreign Minister Daniel Mitov on the decision of the government to change its UN Secretary General candidate.
Meanwhile Rumen Petkov, the deputy head of opposition ABV party, has drawn a parallel between the attitudes Bulgaria's Prime Minister has to the United Nations and to a football club he occasionally plays in, the Bistritsa Tigers.
"Boyko Borisov sees the UN as the Bistritsa Tigers... This is national nihilism - no-one will look seriously even a Bulgarian candidate to run a greengrocery."
