There are a lot more people in the UK than 61 million! Research in 2008 the population for 2006 was 63 million according to the national statistics office; 2 million net emigration, I don't think so.
What we need is a rigorous census that counts everybody.
The Government exhorts us all to to recycle and conserve resources, but shows that it is not really serious by allowing continued mass immigration to boost our population. What is the point of us all striving to recycle and ease the pressure on landfill sites when any improvements we make are immediately negated by mass immigration. Similarly we have to build an extra power station every year with a consequent impact on CO2 emissions. How can the NHS, energy industries or water providers possibly plan ahead when anything they devise is immediately rendered insufficient by immigration. I stopped taking notice of Government pronouncements on the environment years ago - they are just empty words. Human beings are consumers and waste producers, so the best news for the environment would be a steady or falling population: Increasing our population year on year is environmental lunacy.
The population increase must surely be attributable to the "child tax credit", family allowance and other generous benefits Liebore have decided to bestow upon the ever growing sector of society which has decided to accept yellow streak Brown's invitation to forget about working and become full-time parasites. Phil Woolas stated that "The British people can be confident that immigration is under control." Well, that must rank as one of the biggest, if not the biggest lie, to spew out from this Liebore Government of incompetents, in the last 12 years.
