EKKLESIA: Telegraph chooses to ignore its own poll


Two weeks ago, the Telegraph ran a column by Frank Field entitled: 'Why is there no talk about immigration?'. The answer may have now come to light, as the Sunday Telegraph seems to have failed to highlight findings from its own polling.

In the ICM poll it commissioned, which was released on Saturday night, was a question about an amnesty for illegal immigrants (p10):

Would you support/oppose: Allowing illegal immigrants who have a clean record and have been in Britain for 10 years or more, to become full British citizens?

The findings:

Support: 55%
Oppose: 40%
DK: 6%

The apparent support for the Liberal Democrat policy for a migrant amnesty wasn't mentioned in its reporting. Instead, they decided to focus on the study released by MigrationWatch UK which suggested that more than a million illegal immigrants would be granted citizenship.

This has been followed up in the Telegraph today with a column by Matthew Moore entitled 'Nick Clegg struggles to defend immigration policies' and the Telegraph View piece: 'Nick Clegg amnesty folly'. Source here.

How to choose a bankruptcy attorney
If you go on the internet these days you will find a growing number of bankruptcy attorneys advertising their services. Bankruptcy filing in California is increasing at a record pace due to ongoing financial struggles consumers are facing due to job losses and toxic home loans. While many Californians consider filing bankruptcy, the need for a good bankruptcy lawyer is growing. So how do you choose a good bankruptcy attorney? You shop around if you have the time to find the right one. The Law Offices of Zhou & Chini serves the entire state of California with a primary focus in Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. “We carefully consider our client’s financial situation and adjust our fees the best we can to accommodate them”, says James D. Zhou, who has been practicing bankruptcy for over 10 years. Based on the complexity of the case a bankruptcy attorney might charge anywhere from $1200.00 to $4,500. Most bankruptcy attorneys in Southern California charge around $2,500.00, not including filing fees for a chapter 7 and $4,000 for a chapter 13. A business bankruptcy chapter 11 could run as much as $25,000 depending on the size and nature of the business. Zhou & Chini focus on helping consumers meet their goals with a low cost bankruptcy filing whether they’re filing chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcies. A good bankruptcy attorney will always offer a face to face free consultation like the bankruptcy attorneys at Zhou & Chini.

To determine whether you are a good candidate for bankruptcy chapter 7, chapter 13 or chapter 11 you should contact the Law Offices of Zhou and Chini. With Los Angeles County bankruptcy filings up by 75% in March, the likelihood that an individual’s bankruptcy filing could be handled by a paralegal or other non-attorney at a busy firm is quite high. In fact, it’s often the case that clients never have direct contact with their attorney. At Zhou & Chini our bankruptcy attorneys speak to each client throughout the bankruptcy process.
