The explanations for the proposal have been fascinating sufficient to warrant recital at size.
1)The newspapers are the chief literature of the Bulgarian plenty. Books take second place — each Bulgarian reads his newspaper, however solely a share learn books. Thus the newspapers are an important medium for propaganda.
2)Bulgarian journalists occupy a really excessive place within the nation and are very extremely considered. Usually journalists turn into ministers and ministers journalists — there are any variety of journalists. Thus the Bulgarian journalist is a person of significance, partly for himself and partly on account of the affect he workouts, by means of his papers, over the plenty.
three)Numerous European nations, alive to the significance of the press, and focused on Bulgaria for political or financial causes, have set a precedent.

four)Aside from apparent industrial pursuits Nice Britain has, I preserve, a really very important political curiosity in Bulgaria, mainly on account of the Dardanelles query. Bulgaria’s strategic significance was proved as much as the hilt through the World Struggle — and she or he entered that warfare towards us largely as a result of we uncared for to take, in time, apparent steps to stop that occurence. The disastrous penalties are issues of frequent information. However, throughout latest years, no critical steps no matter have been taken to make British propaganda on this nation, whereas different European nations have been spending giant sums of cash for this function, sustaining colleges and golf equipment. It could be argued that British status is already excessive sufficient —that British energy and tradition are extensively identified. This I contest. It was. However now it’s in grave hazard of eclipse by the actions of others. The recollections of the plenty are brief, and the press is the perfect medium for reviving them.

5)Bulgarian journalists visiting England would write their experiences and impressions in a collection of articles. However much more necessary, when occasions happen in Englund or affecting England, these journalists could have perspective or “background.” These factors held good earlier than the change of regime right here, [19 May 1934 — RJC] they usually have greater than ever now, for the reason that newspapers will likely be obliged, owing to the censorship and the suppression of get together politics, to show greater than ever earlier than to overseas affairs for “copy”. There’s, furthermore, the worth of private contacts between these Bulgarians who go to England and the buddies they’ll make there; and the mere proven fact that an invite is issued would make a most beneficial impression.
The Balkans, oh these Balkans! All the time the Balkans have atrracted individuals as a result of there’s something about them. In my view, you individuals ought to pack and go for private Balkan holidays.
