Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But the notion that anyone is dismissed offhand on this forum because they are native English speakers is ludicrous.

No, the idea is that external sources quoted on this forum are dismissed off-hand because the source is English-speaking.

See, for instance, Jerome dismissing a timely and accurate diary about German attitudes to the EU written by marco a year ago

remember my quip about this being an English language article about France, Europe and Germany
"Never believe anything you read in English about Europe" is Jerome's wholly predictable rejoinder. When marco answers
no doubt.  but then what is the bias of Jacques-Pierre Gougeon, a French professor writing in Le Monde?
there's no answer from Jerome.

This is not an isolated incident.
