UK: Migrants will end up driving our population higher than Germany’s
Where will it end? A comment on the original articles reads:
“Britain is heading at the rate of light speed into becoming a third world country. Excessive immigration will result in shortage in housing, water, food supplies and a decline in medical care. In addition to this there will be an increase in crime and criminal activity, with an increase of drug users and suppliers. Because the British seem to lack the will or gumption to stand up and say enough is enough, we sit back and hope that all will be okay. Remember, folks we are all on this ship called Britain that has just been struck by a huge ice burg called immigration and the ship is sinking fast, those of you who think I am okay becauce I am in the dry will soon find the water lapping against their chusy dwellings. Goans from India are flooding into Britain on Portuguese passports, and then bring over their families. Britain and the elected government are turning a blind eye to this problem. Remember all great nations fall from within and not from without. Just look at the Roman empire!”
The citizens, they are not happy!
Britain is destined to become the most heavily populated country in Europe, U.S. experts predicted yesterday.
They said that in 40 years’ time Germany will have lost its position as the European country with the highest number of people, which it has held since it was founded as a unified country 140 years ago.
While Britain’s population will have climbed close to 80million, there will be just 71.5million Germans in 2050, a report said.
The estimates from the U.S. pressure group Population Reference Bureau follow the disclosure earlier this week that a third of all the population growth in Europe is now concentrated in Britain.
The figures supplied by the U.S. organisation say that Germany’s population will have fallen by 11million by 2050, thanks to its falling birth rates and low levels of immigration.
But in Britain – where numbers will reach 70million in 2029 according to official projections – there will be 77million people by 2050, the report said.
In comparison, France, the next most populous European nation, will have seen numbers climb from the current 66.1million to just 70million.
Both France and Germany currently have far more people than the 62million estimated numbers in Britain.
But neither has the high immigration levels which mean numbers in this country are rising much faster than anywhere else on the continent.
Official estimates say that around two thirds of population growth in Britain is a result of high immigration. The latest predictions of the effects of immigration and population growth came as David Cameron tried to put an end to Coalition differences by insisting there will be a cap on numbers coming into the country.
The arguments between ministers – with Business Secretary Vince Cable calling for a ‘liberal’ immigration policy – have come as a spate of new figures give fresh impetus to concerns over the impact of rising population.
European figures earlier this week showed that numbers in Britain swelled by 412,000 in 2009, almost a third of all population growth in the 27 EU countries.
Yesterday ministers disclosed a Whitehall analysis which showed 100,000 new homes will be required each year for the next 25 years simply to cope with the numbers of immigrants arriving in the country.
The Population Reference Bureau, which campaigns for the spread of contraception as a means of controlling population numbers around the world, published figures similar to those first calculated by the United Nations last year.
The UN accepted official British estimates that the population of this country will grow by 174,000 a year as a result of migration.
But in Germany migration will add only 110,000 a year to the population while birth rates are falling, and in France, migration will mean an extra 100,000 people each year.
Frank Field and Nicholas Soames, the backbench Labour and Tory MPs who head the Cross-Party Group on Balanced Migration, said in a statement that it was necessary to restrict immigration.
‘If this is to be achieved, whilst retaining the flexibility that our economy needs, we must ensure that economic migration no longer confers an almost automatic right to settle here.’
