we deal with both of these fellow tts  and it may help you to understand where we are comming from


and just "who" are "we"..... in the above statement? 
are you a political group? ..... If you want to be taken seriously, then may I suggest you "nail your colours to the mast"  (in nautical parlance) so that we, (the under informed) can gain some kind of empathy (or not) for your cause.....

Migrationwatch UK is an independent think tank. It is chaired by Sir Andrew Green, a former Ambassador to Saudi Arabia. We have a distinguished Advisory Council from diverse ethnic and professional backgrounds.
We entirely accept that genuine refugees should be welcomed; nowadays those granted protection comprise only about 3% of net foreign immigration.
We also recognise that many immigrants have made a valuable contribution to our society in terms both of skills and diversity so we are not opposed to immigration that is moderate and managed. At present it is neither.
Our purpose is to monitor developments, conduct research, and provide the public with full and accurate facts placed in their proper context. We also make recommendations for policy.
Since its formation in September 2008 we have provided research for the Cross Party Group on Balanced Migration led by Frank Field MP (Labour) and Nicholas Soames MP (Conservative). Details of the Group and their proposals can be found at www.balancedmigration.org

I think jelv was about right ‘just a group of grumpy old men who meet up in the pub on a Sunday night with totally overinflated opinions of self-importance’…….overinflated waistline in one instance also

Re: Here are the facts

Kindly keep in mind that many people of my generation did not go to university or Grammar Schools so did not have the opportunity to learn French so such quotes on this forum are wasted on me. ( and no doubt a few others)
My time was spent doing woodwork & Metal work lessons which I Have found of more benefit to me than speaking some foreign language.
There is much misunderstanding when we all speak the same language so when we speak different languages there must be an ever greater chance of misunderstanding !

Re: Here are the facts

Apologies of course gleneagles, but my post was a light hearted continuation of nadger’s (I believe also light hearted) post combining two threads, the UK/French defence tie up and this thread, where he described his thinktank in French much like people say ‘Faux pas’ instead of ‘mistake’. I asked if I could join and he kindly allowed me to
