The gap between the likes of us (in the UK, online for 16 hours a day, every day, to the detriment of our health and sanity) and them (in Bulgaria, haven’t even got the internet) is vast, so vast that a whopping 40% of people in the EU simply don’t use the internet at all.
Only 19% of homes in Bulgaria have web access, compared to a high of 83% in the Netherlands. The Bulgarians must watch a lot of TV. Or play outside. Perhaps some of them are massive alcoholics? Frankly, the inner workings of Bulgaria are a mystery to us, so all we can do is wildly generalise in a borderline racist fashion.
They’re not idly browsing Facebook for attractive ex-workmates for four hours at a time in Bulgaria, that’s for sure.
