What is bizarre in my view is the support voiced by the European Commission for the anti-corruption protests.
EU commissioner for justice Viviane Reding at a Citizens’ Dialogue event in Sofia said she was “very much moved by the strong desire of the Bulgarian citizen to have this change, to fight for democracy, to fight against corruption.”Nothing wrong, one might say, with supporting the protesters. I feel the same way myself. But is the Commission now on the side of street protests against the governments of member states? Does it intend to form an alliance in order to strengthen its own position?
“My sympathy is with the Bulgarian citizens who are protesting on the streets against corruption,” she said.
