The Foreign Minister of Bulgaria, Ivailo Kalfin, has just started a blog.
What I find interesting here is the “about” section:
With this weblog I would like to enter a discussion about some of the issues that are on the top of the agenda of Bulgariaâ€™s foreign policy, the developments in the European Union, the major challenges of todayâ€™s world. I really appreciate the opportunity to use the democratic web space for such a discussion. I expect various comments. My intention is to write as often as possible. The languages? Your choice using English, French, Spanish, Russian or Bulgarian. Please be generous if you find any typing or grammar mistake, especially if this is not in my mother tongue. Nobodyâ€™s perfectâ€¦
I find that rather sweet.
Foreign Minister Kalfin is 42 years old; he’s an economist who identifies as a Social Democrat; he has a Masters degree from Loughborough University in Leicestershire.
— Bleg: are there any other European Ministers with blogs? And if so, are any of them remotely worth reading? I would expect any such blogs to be rather bland and feeble, but Europe is a big place. Are there any surprises out there?
