The Dutch ambassador to Sofia, Tom van Oorschot, reiterated the stance of his country that Bulgaria is not ready for accession to the Schengen Area.
The diplomat said this in an interview for private bTV station which was conducted while riding a bike in downtown Sofia.
In his words, if the judicial system starts functioning properly in Bulgaria, this will bring economic growth to the country....
The opinions of the ordinary people in western europe are and have always been totally ignored by their leaders and the EUrocrats. I doubt very much if ordinary people wanted their health services overloaded, diseases they had eradicated more than a hundred years ago reintroduced, their own people living on the streets or thrown out of their homes to make way for migrants, their religion destroyed, their education services dumbed down, their countries massively overcrowded, their people threatened by invading hordes or their people fired from their jobs to make way for cheaper overseas workers. Bulgarian leaders and those of other countries can learn the lessons of western europe and keep Bulgaria for its own people and do the best it can for them
It looks like Schengen itself isn't "ready for Schengen"... By the way, Bulgaria behaves more responsible than some countries who already are parties to Schengen agreement. You shouldn't feel offended, the Dutch and other richer EU nations simply love to teach, advice and comment on others. Sometimes it is even helpful because no one is that good not to be better. On the other hand, it was very funny to see how they commented on Viktor Orban's border fence with Serbia, and built the same on their borders just a couple of months later.
