But it’s the European Union’s dirty secret that one of its major manufacturers is a factory set in a rose-strewn valley in the heart of the EU. Colin Freeman reports This article has an estimated read time of 10 minutes Fittingly for a place that deals in death, the town of Kazanlak does not advertise its wares. Sprawling across a rose-covered valley in central Bulgaria, it looks like any other stretch of the Iron Curtain rust belt, a huddle of drab tower blocks and derelict factories. In the tourist kiosk in the main square, visitors learn that its main claim to fame is as a rose oil producer, with an annual flower festival and a Princess of the Roses beauty contest. The real money in … [Read more...] about Licensed to kill: The Kalashnikov centre of Europe

The two sides revealed they had come together for talks just over two weeks ago after the Supreme Court announced it had dismissed a review into a legal challenge over the sale of the Ricoh Arena to Wasps.
