    Is Hristo Stoichkov the most famous Bulgarian? I can't think of any others.
    Well, that's hard to say but if you haven't heard of another one, then yes.

    No, but I can understand about 50 percent when they speak, and nearly 90 when I read something in Russian.

    It is a joke that is basically saying Remove Turkish people from Serbia and that area. It came about after 3 patriotic Bulgarian men made a song and someone did a parody of it. that is where the phrase remove kebab comes from.

    Its just a bit of a joke

    It's nice that weren't discriminated against, it's a shame you can't treat the Roma (don't call them gypsies) with the same respect. You wouldn't like people saying Bulgarians live on taxpayer's money and aren't proper Europeans, so don't say that about other people. :dong:

    But the gypsies are largely poor and unemployed. they have the highest economic inactivity rates with 50%
    60% of them have no qualifications.
    2x as likely to live in social housing

    Just read that.

    I feel no sympathy for them, they have a culture that is horrible, While some of them are ok many of them are not, disregarding local and national laws and invading peoples properties. Many times has my local area been disturbed and attacked by these horrible people.

    They steal land owned by the people and claim it as their own, they leave horses tethered to polls threatening people walking by as a horse can be very dangerous.
    They smash bushes and gardens.

    I even had one time it got so bad I had to sit with a rifle by the window because so many of them were On the streets going door to door smashing bottles and Screaming.

    These people should not be accepted if they continue to act like this.

    And while many of these people are ok they still have the highest proportion of people out of work and on benefits and this is unacceptable.

    The Bulgarian person has all the right to dislike Gypsies.

    I repeat, that report is not about the Romany people. 'Gypsy' does not = Romany, especially in the UK.

    He was talking about Romany people. You are talking about a group of British people who either call themselves or are called by the public 'gypsies' - that does not mean they are the same people, they aren't.

    Which part? Most of the document says the Roma are poor, that is no reason to hate them.
