След бламирането на конституционната реформа на Хр. Иванов
Кунева и Лукарски мълчат като риби, гербаджийте и Патриотичният фронт нагло се подсмиват, а Първановите руски мекерета отявлено триумфират. ДПС не се държат по по-различен начин, а БСП не знаят какво да кажат. Това видях досега, към 20.00 ч.на 9 декември 20...
