We do take things for granted now, a nice lecci blanket at bedtime is what we have here in BG. But as a teenager I remember laying in bed with my toes bent over with the weight of the blankets on the bed and scraping ice off the inside of the window when I go up!! Happy days maybe, we were younger then weren't we? Couldn't do it now though!!

Only a cuddle when we have both warmed up!! It's like holding a block of ice otherwise.

In the more recent past I have lived in a complete ruin without telephone, TV or electric heating and two lightbulbs but I didn't live in -25 temperatures and my life was not ruled by Mafia.
These protests are nothing at all to do with what we Brits have or have not. The protests are about far more than just electricity rises, which incidentally happened two Januaries ago. They are more to do with the monopoly the Bulgarian Mafia hold over the country as a whole. Maybe Bulgarians are at last asserting their rights with EU backing in an attempt to stop all the profiteering on the backs of the generally poor population. It is civil unrest and to be taken very seriously. Bulgarian TV was taken over this morning with a live broadcast by Boyko who has been in telephone talks with Putin. The finance minister has resigned which tells exactly how serious things are in the country. This is not a joking matter for anyone least of all a few priviledged Expats.

Sorry Willowsend but I live in this country and whilst I have my Bulgarian hat on I will support the majority of the population. The unrest is not because bills are higher due to cold (no -25 temps this winter) but the fact that bills have escalated for no reason. Ours have as well and a village lad who has literally one light bulb and was away working for two weeks had a bill for 10levs when its usually 2 levs.. This appals me and my fuse is certainly burning. Apparently Boyko has said he will consider revoking CEZ's licence. We will wait and see.

Bravo oldun and like you we live in BG. Boyko has also said today that the price will down in March.

People do not really understand what it is like over here. My friend is a plumber and is rated as the best in our area. He has had no work for 2 months this is not because of the winter this is because there is no money. He is a good man and he employs 4 people he still pays them what he can. We offered to bring forward one of our projects in order that he has something to do. But they are proud people and he would not let us do it as he knows we are on pensions. No wonder the older generation here preferred the Communist times where everyone was equal, even though some more equal than others.

oldun with your Bulgarian hat on :Very funny 2:Work this one out for me then. My January bill, to be paid by the 26th Feb is 72.56leva. Yes the electricity is left on because of the security system and a low wattage bulb by the gate but that is it. Last year the January bill was 7.60leva so something somewhere is wrong

Yes Bryan that is why the Bulgarians are protesting something is wrong. It is not just the leccie prices they are fed up with but also with gas &
water plus that the Mafia get a rake off in everything that goes on. Because of the corruption they feel that they are not getting a fair deal in Europe and are treated like second class citizens. These people maybe poor in places but they are a proud nation. Again like oldun we live here and that is not a dig at people who have holiday homes etc. Unless you listen to the ordinary Bulgarian you would never understand the real hatred they feel . :Headbang:They feel the only way forward is to protest.
