It has gone totally off

Denmark's Statistics reported in the serie New From Denmarks's Statistics no August 9th 2005 of fewer Somalis in Denmark , and of an decrease in the number of immigrants in Denmark in second quarter of 2005 while 125 Somalis more arrived here. And that is certainly not the worst: The Jyllands-Posten's reporters got it all wrong, because they did not notice that 3052 were given the Danish citizenship on June 14th this year and because they chose an useless statistic - the one accounting matters not individuals. It is the truth!
The result was that the number of immigrants officielly went down with 315 in the second quarter of 2005 even though the number really went up with about 6.000-7.500.
Then I am asked, who has to bear the heaviest responsibility. Nobody, of course. Perhaps we should ask the court of law? I would say: CERTAINLY NOT!
