That's equal to the population of a city the size of Leeds , the Office of National Statistics also forecast that UK population will grow to 70m by 2027 , of course those are just the people who are being counted , add in illegal immigration and I guess the number will be even more concerning.

Revised statistics show numbers rising at a sustained pace not matched for 100 years. And the main factor behind the increase is immigration. The projections suggest that, in just over 30 years, Britain will overtake Germany as the most populous country in Europe.

All estimates produced two years ago have been revised heavily upwards in a report published yesterday by the Office for National Statistics. Over the next ten years, the population is expected to rise annually by 491,000. Leeds’s current total is 486,000.

Most will live in the already-crowded South of England.

This small island is getting smaller , the legacy of empire has come home to roost.

Yes and we will be well over crowded and spilling over

the edges of our small island .... much like the boats of refugees

now coming out of the African continent!!

And by then, the indigenous 'Brit' will be in a *minority*

Wouldn't bother me, but it's not going to happen in any of our life times, we've still got Charles, William and George to reign over us until that could be possible.

Roughly 50% of that figure is through more people being born than people dying - that's surely through increased health?

Not sure about the legacy of the empire though - can't remember Poland, Lithuania, Romania etc being part of a British empire.

The figures are easily manipulated as always.

There was a drop in births last year but also in deaths. Employment is also down th 5.5% second in Europe with only Germany having a lower rate.

I am not saying it is not an issue, simply that there are more factors than "immigrants" when looking at the situation.

Immigration. Health are has gone up but would not account for the rapid increase. Around my area you lucky to hear the English language being spoken in public places. Polish people were the last fad, now Albanians are the problem. The problem is colonisation, pure and simple. They won't assimilate into the local community, they expand till they create a new community, leaving the indigenous people to move outside of the area they once loved.

Just spend an hour by the maternity ward doors of almost any hospital in the UK and count the amount of our "Wonderful and diverse culture" as apposed to the amount of British people going in and out for child birth.

It's wonderful!

It is wonderful, until EU members go back to their own country and we still pay them child benefits even though they aren't in Britain. Not so wonderful then.

Completely agree, hence my post. Technically the UK is nowhere near overcrowded anyway, it's just not developed with houses and amenities to meet a rising population whatever the cause for that rise is.

The figures are easily manipulated as always.

There was a drop in births last year but also in deaths. Employment is also down th 5.5% second in Europe with only Germany having a lower rate.

Not necessarily.

More than half (54%) of the increase of the UK population between 1991 and 2012 was due to the direct contribution of net migration.


A recent ONS report (Dormon 2014) using the latest Census data for England and Wales has shown that births to foreign-born women made up 25.5% of all births in 2011, up from 16.4% one decade earlier (2001).

The legacy of the empire isn't just about the countries we ruled but the mark we made while doing it , people want to come to this country because of the impression they have of us , the stories they have been told , the belief that we all live in little leafy hamlets , take afternoon tea and are all jolly spiffing to Johnny foreigner.
People want to come here because we are Great Britain.
