Why Is UK Afraid of Us?Opinions |Author: Iliya Kalchev | March 29, 2013, Friday // 11:20| views
Misery... people literally set themselves on fire in their desperation...
At least a third of Bulgarians are unemployed, the country tops statistics for death-rates, corruption, poverty, misery, illiteracy, media dependency...
Well done, rulers of Bulgaria's democratic transition!
And now, it seems, we are one of the most unwelcome Europeans, after authorities in the United Kingdom implied they want nothing in common with our problems.
No country wants a wave of poor immigrants, living on social benefits, but who are the British so afraid of?
Of the gypsies, who do not speak any foreign language and would be rejected by any society?
Of the pensioners, who are down on their knees from poverty, let alone move to live abroad?
Of 2 million emigrants, who have already settled abroad?
The people left are a small bunch, determined to change Bulgaria for good, and workers, ready to take up dirty jobs in Western Europe.
Is it us they are scared of?
A simple test in English language proficiency would easily sieve out, who has an honest reason for moving to the UK and who doesn't.
Why are they treating us like second-hand people and when will this attitude stop?
