Brits Living in the EU/Bulgaria



The above figures are for British people living in EU states. I think, looking at the Balkan states, the proportions seem about right.However I take it that the figures reflect those that have long term residency cards and thus may understate the true figures.Still interesting though.Any comments ?.

5.6 earthquake in Vrancea - Romania rocked northeastern Bulgaria Dobrich - News Dobrich | Dobrich Classifieds | Companies Dobrich:



As you can see the earthquake was felt in Bulgaria too.I enclose an article about the deadly 1977 earthquake from the same epicentre.As you can see this is nowhere near as bad:

1977 Vrancea earthquake

The 1977 Vrancea Earthquake occurred on Friday, 4 March 1977, 21:20 local time and was felt throughout the Balkans. It had a magnitude of 7.2 and its epicenter in Vrancea (in the Eastern Carpathians) at a depth of 94 kilometers.

The earthquake killed about 1,578 people, of which only 1,424 in Bucharest, and wounded more than 11,300.

Among the victims was the Romanian actor Toma Caragiu.

About 35,000 buildings were damaged, and the direct loss was estimated at more than two billion dollars. Most of the damage was concentrated in Romania's capital, Bucharest, where about 33 large buildings collapsed. Most of those buildings were built before World War II, and were not reinforced. Many of the historic buildings that collapsed were not rebuilt; instead, the land was cleared for the building of the Palace of the Parliament. After the earthquake, the Romanian government imposed tougher construction standards. (source Wikipedia)

Foreign Office condemned for failing Britons in need of help | Politics | The Observer:

Uncle's Comment: Certainly the anecdotal evidence is that the Foreign Office is much less helpful than other Embassies.The withdrawal of Consular services from Sofia to Dusseldorf, was an expensive inconvenience.Now services are centred in the UK.With the swingeing Coalition cuts the F.O. is an easy target.It is Brits abroad who pay the price.

Uncle's Comment: A lot of the announcement is simply a rehash of what they did last year; in terms of festivals etc.What is lacking is an integrated tourism strategy: such as regular tour guides,promoting Balchik as a conference destination, eco tourism, golf tourism.

Bulgaria has a new goverment the Centre-Right, Nationalists and ex Socialists

In 15:30. GERD and RB signed the coalition agreement - trud.bg:



Uncles Comment: This combination will last a few months. GERB (the ex PM Boiko Borisov's party) is allegedly pro European, the others look to Russia.For a range of issues from gas pipelines through to procurement contracts and foreign policy this could be hell on earth. It is interesting to note that Borisov is the first PM since Communism to become PM for the second time, and whose political formation has not collapsed (obviously the BSP is a perennial)
