Varna Today

I spent the day in Varna today for a variety of reasons and did alot of walking about.

Comparatively little ice as I strolled down Vladislav Varnenchuk Boulevard, ending up at the Opera House.The weather was not very cold by comparison with recent events, and the sun was out making it a pleasant day.

One thing that did strike me were the big queues outside the chemists (Aptika).Mainly they were pensioners who must be feeling the effects of the severe cold.

So here we go again , after the David Laws exit for fiddling his expenses we now have Huhne going for conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.Two Lib Dem cabinet minsters in the space of months.
Perhaps they thought that as opposition MP's no one could care, but now they are in the cold light of day.
