The arts of self-defense are optional for individuals, but necessary for States. Actually, the first duty of any State or Union is to protect it's citizens. History has taught us that lesson again and again!
Too right Charlie, ironically the only reason for them to lie (and they both have) is to try and protect the vested interests of their members, i.e. taking huge bribes from criminals, allocating themselves property by falsifying documents as well as general laziness and incompetence. The entire system is rotten and needs brutal regulation by an independent authority, backed up by State law, with the power to suspend or strike-off any member suspected of wrongdoing!
Bulgaria's judicial system is still largely Soviet in nature and completely unfit for purpose in modern times. Notaries are listed on a government register, but nonetheless many are still corrupt. With Lawyers, there is almost no sanction against them whatsoever, if they are incompetent or corrupt. It is well known that the judiciary 'feather their own nests', and/or are owned by the Mutri.
What is urgently required are Regulatory Authorities with the power to suspend or strike-off any Notary, Lawyer or member of the Judiciary who is under the slightest suspicion of conflict of interest, corruption or incompetence. Only a real fear of losing the right to practice their professions is likely to have any impact on reforming the system, and given that malpractice is so pervasive it might be necessary to 'overlook' misdeeds of the past and focus on absolute probity for the future.
If 7 000 had to be slaughtered, these farmers have probably been 'overlooking' the problem for some time?
Boyko has lost the plot on this issue, I think. Surely, it was right to prevent serious harm against the 500,000 people who live in Benghazi? Or at the very least, avoid the creation of 500,000 refugees? Anyway, given that Libya needs to import 70% of it's food, I suspect that even Gaddafi won't be able to find anything to eat before long!
Ummm, maybe Mr Krasimir Velchev did not quite recognise the fact that the ten political commandments he alludes to, are in actual fact a list of the ten most common lies that politicians espouse. How to be a politician not, lol :-).
Yane, the Anglo Saxon types usually goes to Spain for a holiday, it's the decendents of maurauding Vikings that are usually the problem (and not just in Bulgaria!) :-).
This article is just lunacy, I think somebody has got the wrong end of the stick here ;-). Common mobile phones charges for the EU are one thing, a common mobile phone charger is quite another... well, it's just a lunatic idea! :-).
