Commenting article: UKIP Leader Lashes Out at Bulgaria, Triggers Controversy

The UK Independence Party leader has renewed with a vengeance his criticism of Bulgaria in a bid to fuel fears over new immigrants, coming as of 2014.

"It is completely irresponsible, wrong and stupid to be opening up our doors next January to 29 million people from Romania and Bulgaria," Nigel Farage fumed on BBC's Question Time.

In his words nearly 50% of Bulgaria's population are living on or below a very low poverty line, the average monthly salary is EUR 200 a month, while the average pensioner gets EUR 100 a month.

Nigel Farage, what a freaking name is that anyways……
Nigel wake up Nigel, you are one of those many disillusioned Brits living in a LaLa land…..
Your actions, opinion and points of view are the reason for the dying state of the UK economy.
Protectionism and fear from competition brought your country’s economy to its knees.
Just look at your “byproduct” the USA, still going strong with 50 million Latinos, 30 million Asians, 30 million African Americans, etc. etc. etc and roughly 10 million illegal immigrants at any given moment.
No wonder they call it the land of the free and the brave!
Anyways Nigel, Bulgaria and Romania are not your problem and neither is the EU.
Your problem is the lack of ingenuity, creativity, guts, free spirit, bravery, inability to compete, overprized and over regulated labor and business, too much conservatism, etc. etc. etc.
And this is where you stand now….
