Congrats - I can't believe the pomposity of the announcement of
this group, so I'm gald to see someone has treated it in the way
it deserved.

Can I suggest that the best 'new start' British ufology needs is
for the 'investigators' to learn some humility.

That's not a xenophobe foreigner view, but that of a Brit who's
amazed at the certainty of some of the members of this

It's a shame that the announcement bears all the signs of the
stereotype Brit (Englishman) - absolute certainty, elitism and
dismissal of any doubt.
