@holly I should add to that, that it should be emphasised to anyone getting involved in policy-making that they have an obligation to look at what the situation was 10 and 20 and 30 and 40 years ago and compare to today, so they don't get stuck in presentism.

I was trying to find out when "sham" marriage (ie marriages conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining immigration status) in the UK became illegal, and started on wikipedia as usual... and found a page that is clearly based on a Migration Watch press release is massively racist.

Does anyone have a clue how to fix this?
