WOULD YOU BUY AN USED CAR FROM ANY OF THESE PEOPLE?

In an election campaign almost entirely dominated by finger-pointing and mudslinging the "genius" PRs of the CC-DB-DSB, or Changes Continued-Democratic Bulgaria-Democrats for a Strong Bulgaria, seem to have gained the top ignominy for the worst election message. In an ill-thoughtover replay of the 1960 ad for JFK targeted at Richard Nixon – anyone remember the Would-You-Buy-an-Used-Car-From-This-Man publicity stunt?

I do not comment on the panic attacks of any political leader. This issue should be addressed by a doctor.

President Rumen Radev on the leader of the DPS Delyan Peevski's assertion that the he wanted to yield Bulgaria to Putin

WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU?

Many of its wooden houses are well preserved, some have been turned into museums, there are places to stay and places to eat, and the village is home to a couple of festivals one of which gathers an international crowd clad in traditional costumes. Several important Bulgarian historical personalities, including the great writer Yordan Yovkov, have been born here.

WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU?

At least a dozen man-made lakes of various sizes attract many locals who come here for the serenity, the mountain air and for the angling and photography opportunities. In actual fact being by a lake, especially in summertime, in many ways outshines going to the seaside if only because there are no crowds and it gets cooler at night.

NEED A CONSPIRACY THEORY?

Atanas Atanasov is a general. He was the head of the Bulgarian security service under Ivan Kostov, the Bulgarian prime minister in 1997-2001, who inimitably prompted just two reactions: love or hate. There are still people who swear by him because they think he was resolute in dismantling the Communist system, and other people who swear at him because they consider all evils to have befallen Bulgaria since 1989 to be directly or indirectly attributable to him.
