The media made a bit of a song and dance over the news that the population of Britain has now breached the 61,000,000 mark. Laban over on UK Commentators notes that one such media hack is pleased that this has happened and is grateful to the wave of immigrants that have recently flooded into our nation.
"So the latest figures are a source of hope — showing that relatively fertile immigrants can, at least for a while, replenish the new generation of young people the country needs." *
What nobody seems to be mentioning, however, is that over the last 40 years we have, through abortion on demand, wiped out some 6,000,000 viable "young people" that the country is supposed to need - and that those young people would quite probably have gone on to have had children of their own by now.
In other words, we are now relying on imported kids due to the fact we can't be bothered to make our own.
* All this depends on swallowing the belief that the only way to achieve economic growth is by adding productive bodies. It's not a belief I share.
