Indeed. Even if you were foreign it wouldnt make your points any less valid...unless you happened to be from Malaysis/Singapore area and obsessed with the 'Eton dream' and 'English gentlemen'. Those people I dont have time for.

im doing this topic for my french Alevel oral exam!!! its really good to find out other peroples arguements for and against, does anyone think it would work in England? (in non religious schools) despite the fact that we've never really tried to spearate religion and education from each other?

True. But many members of the Muslim Council are as French as Chirac himself.
Do you think many members of the Muslim Council can trace back their roots in France over, what a 1000 years?......like Chirac probably can.

There are different degrees of "Frenchness" you know. A 1st generation Algerian is NOT as French as someone who can trace his ansestry back to the Norman invasion.

Perhaps because there are different degrees of 'Frenchness' is why they have the problems with this legislation in the first place.

What a difference in attitude to say, Australia, where newly arrived immigrants are not seen as Italian, Turkish, Thai etc. but rather as 'new Australians' - and then not for long.

I actually agree with you that what I think (yes, I am British although I'm still not sure that you are) is irrelevant to the predicament that France finds itself in over this issure - although of course, I and my fellow countrymen plus many other nations in the world are appalled by the proposals.

I would suggest that as it has nothing to do with this country that we don't waste any more time in discussing the matter.
"Appalled"? Bit of an overreaction isn't it?

Apart from some of the contributors to this forum and the Islington dinner party set I think you'll find the remainder of your fellow countrymen are not appalled at all.

Hmmm....is that a fact?

my sentiments exactly. although, my questions on the matter were deemed as attempts to 'ensnare forum members'...

or its inability to execute a fair, robust and efficient immigrant policy, among other things? i fail to see how Britain is vastly more liberal than the Netherlands or France or Belgium? the people certainly arent.
