Most Bulgarian villagers insulate their water-meters during the winter months. The usual way is to use polythene, (known as nylon in Bulgaria). You wind a wide strip around the water-meter, perhaps five or six times or more, and tie the ends tightly with string so as to get a fairly air tight seal a...

Könnten Sie bitte spezifischer sein. Auf welche Medikamente und auf welche Zulieferer beziehen Sie sich?

Die meisten Dinge sind im Internet verfügbar, wenn Sie wissen, wo sie. Ob es legal ist oder nicht, ist eine andere Sache, und das ist für die Behörden zu entscheiden.

As things stand at the present time, getting a Bulgarian Passport would necessitate giving up the UK passport. In my case it would also involve a wait of five years. While I could quite easily pass as Scottish, I could never really pass as Bulgarian, no matter how well I perfected my language skills...

I absolutely agree with you. The first rule of diplomacy is tit-for-tat. Rather than hoping for a Bulgarian passport I am now considering the possibility of renting some rooms in North Ayrshire (the cheapest place), in anticipation of being granted a future Scottish EU passport. It is ironic that in...

As I see it: if you were born in Bulgaria and have Bulgarian nationality from birth then you are entitled to apply for citizenship of another country and if successful you are then allowed dual nationality. However if you apply for Bulgarian nationality as a result of being a resident for five years...

The requirement that is bothering me is as follows: Section III Acquisition of Bulgarian Citizenship through Naturalization. Article 12 Any person who is not a Bulgarian citizen may acquire Bulgarian citizenship if as of the date of filing an application for naturalization: 6. (New SG No. 41/2000) w...

From the guardians comments section: "If Boris Johnson looked downbeat yesterday, that is because he realises that he has lost. Perhaps many Brexiters do not realise it yet, but they have actually lost, and it is all down to one man: David Cameron. With one fell swoop yesterday at 9:15 am, Cameron e...

Re: Uncle B

It's reassuring to read that Boiko Borisov is open and welcome to British Bulgarian residents asking for Bulgarian citizenship. However he did not say whether the applicants would still be required to give up their UK nationality. I would guess that most Brits would be very reluctant to do this.

There is a petition underway to request a second referendum on the grounds that the first referendum result was too close. All UK citizens may sign, and also UK residents may sign.

Yes, a lot of issues - loss of heating allowances for pensioners, loss of entitlement to increases in State pension.... quite a list of things to be sorted over the next two years. Although nothing is certain, I would guess that the annual pension increases would continue. At the present time these...
