'Bulgaria is building a razor wire fence on a 30-kilometre (19 miles) stretch of the country's border with Turkey, which it claims is to try to stop illegal immigration.

The three-metre-high fence is expected to be ready by February. It it will run mainly through forested, hilly areas where visibility for border patrols is limited.

During the Cold War, Bulgaria's barbed-wire borders prevented its citizens from fleeing to the West but after the country joined Nato in 2004 all fences were removed.'

In other words, the complete opposite to the UK.
We do not build fences and any ones which were there, have been removed.

So how bad does your own country have to be to make you want to illegally cross the border into Bulgaria, I wonder?

AND where is the UN condemnation?
Or is that reserved for first world countries like Australia and the UK?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.
