Statement: Trud article mischaracterising my argument

I would like to reiterate here what I already posted on social media yesterday. The biggest-circulation newspaper in Bulgaria, Trud, published a translated version of my recent article about Robert Schuman. It can be read here. The original was an article published by CityAM.

The last paragraph completely mischaracterises my argument, which was about free trade, and not at all an anti-immigration argument. I have contacted the newspaper to ask them to issue a correction:

My advocacy is pro-liberty, and would not try and describe immigration as a burden on the European continent. I therefore distance myself from the affiliation with this newspaper and this article in particular.

About Bill Wirtz

My name is Bill, I'm from Luxembourg and I write about the virtues of a free society. I favour individual and economic freedom and I believe in the capabilities people can develop when they have to take their own responsibilities.
