\"Priorirties\"? Good to see that illiteracy is alive and well among Americans as well as Brits!
Mtonev - I hate to disabuse you of your well-meant misapprehension but sadly the majority of native English speakers have as bad, if not worse, a command of their language as the Whinging Pom personified by Mr Smith. Indeed, I have a sneaking suspicion that he may be the alter ego of Mr Carl Spate, the archetypal Anglo-Saxon oik.
A good grasp of English is an end in itself and "buys" nothing that would be of value to a semi-literate person - it's also a mark of respect to the people with whom one is trying to communicate.
Tellingly, you seem to regard possessions as some sort of indication of personal worth, which probably says all that is needed. Since you ask, my work has bought me properties in several prestigious parts of Sofia (including Boyana, I'm afraid), together with two in London, another in the UK countryside, one in Greece and an 80 acre estate in France with a mas dating back to to the 15th century. Unlike you, I don't feel the need to boast about such things however: there are many people, both richer and poorer than I, who make better contributions to the world and the people in it; sadly, I have seen no signs that you figure among their number.
I fear you have me confused with someone of your own puerile intellect (and lack of education), dear boy. Your opinions are usually ridiculous and your disapprobation is a matter of supreme indifference to me. I hope that's clear enough for you.
\"..special home for temporary accommodation\"? Isn\'t it time to re-open the one in Belene for these unwelcome and illegal interlopers?
Can we assume that the "aspirational tourists" you refer to are the ones like yourself, ie with delusions of adequacy? Perhaps they'd need to shed the chips on their shoulders and their habit of spraying grocer's apostrophes about before we allow them into the country: while it's good to take their money, one has to have some standards, old boy.
\"Show solidarity\"? Great idea - deport him to Homs, so he can put his money where his mouth is......
Great! More British tsigani to be deported....
Well, Mr Smith - you have chosen to live in the Balkans, where clerks like to make people's lives difficult: what's the point of having even a tiny bit of power if you don't use it? Time to get used to things being different in Bulgaria - that's one of the reasons why you're here.
Do you seriously imagine that a Bulgarian going to a municipal office in some one-horse town in the UK is going to find anyone who speaks even a little Bulgarian? And why should forms here be in any (or indeed, every) other language? You've been here four years and it's way past time to learn the language; in fact, after so long you apparently haven't even discovered that "lev" is singular, for goodness sake!
As "Baldy" says - there is a Utopia awaiting just a short Wizzair flight away, if things here aren't to your liking....
