Bulgarians more corrupt than ever

According to Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index published on Thursday Bulgaria is the most corrupt country in the EU. This is a slap in the face for Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, says the daily Sega: "The index strips the government of one of its main arguments for staying in power, apart from all its other failures. ... Boyko Borisov and his colleagues never tire of repeating how corrupt everyone before them was, how the corruption of the previous government had tarnished the country's government and how this caused the EU funding to be cut off, and so on. ... In reality however it turns out that within just two years the current government has managed not only to top its predecessor regarding corruption but to land Bulgaria at the bottom of the list in the EU."
