What do an ageing cartoonist, pen pusher on the paycheck of the oligarchy and a rhinoceros may share in common? It is hard to guess, isn’t it? The answer, however, is simple – all of them are tools in the hands of the Bulgarian backstage power brokers. Targeted as the sworn enemy of the behind-the-scenes clique, the lawmaker of the opposition Movement for Rights and Freedoms and publisher of Telegraph Media Delyan Peevski who, on top of everything, is the nominee for MEP for the second time is their main opponent.
The name of the MP so much abhors the indicted bosses in Bulgaria that they are ready to shut him out from running for MEP and make all do-or-die attempts to impede his European initiatives.
For instance, they are trying to bring forth a worn-out cartoonist who keeps barking about public morals while at the same time he duly undersigns his paychecks at the office of natural gas baron Sasho Donchev. If nothing else, they set in motion all of their pen pushers who 7/24 are writing malicious texts about Peevski (where the only word spelled correctly is his name, albeit not always – Ed.’ Note).
These articles, not grounded in fact or evidence, are aimed at one sole thing – to suggest to the public that the lawmaker is a real “bad guy” who eats infants for breakfast. Just because Peevski doesn’t want to take part in the oligarchic scheming and for years now through his legislative initiatives and media outlets of Telegraph Media has been exposing their shady deals. And this is very untoward for the indicted criminal bosses, such as Ivo Prokopev, Tsvetan Vassilev and many other shadowy players who got accustomed to keeping the national wealth and the money of the entire community in their hands without having won a single election in the recent two decades.
And, as we have mentioned elections, we got around to a rhino – a unicorn animal used as an example by one of the contributors to a pseudo-independent publication, namely that Peevski should not become an MEP. Because, in her opinion (as well as in the opinion of other pawns on call of the oligarchs, such as NGO Boets, for example – Ed.’s note) (See here), Peevski was not in Bulgaria because no one saw him. In actuality, Peevski has not disappeared, much to the horror of the oligarchs, and all of their suggestions about the contrary, only bring grist to the mill of the indicted criminal bosses. Or are due to the apparently failing candidates for Brussels who are prepared even to turn out their pockets to make the world hear that they quote the name of Peevski (See here). Or how the agents of the communist State Security, who are alive and kicking to this day, only smear the lawmaker and live by these smear campaigns for years (See here).
All of them are desperately hoping that Peevski will stay in Bulgaria and never make it to Brussels because they are very much afraid of it (See here). Otherwise, the spring has come. The pre-election time when everything springs up – from the real champions of justice to the wrongdoings of those who for years have been cheating on us and plundering our money. We have just take a closer look and everything will come out!
