I’m sick and tired of hearing about how Britain’s population is rising faster than any other European countries, what measures the government is going to have to take to cope with the increasing population, how 24 hours a day running water might not be feasible in the South East in a few years’ time etc etc. If a doctor tells you that you’re going to have a heart attack within 10 years if you don’t change your lifestyle, you don’t start planning which hospital you’re going to go to when you have your heart attack do you? You take steps to AVOID having a heart attack! By the same token we should be taking steps to halt and reverse the population rise because this country (and London in particular) is grossly overcrowded compared to every other city I’ve been in.
Any politician serious about making life better for the British people (and that SHOULD be every politician’s main aim surely!) would put population control at the top of their agenda, the fact that no party seems to even mention it is one of the main reasons I don’t vote. And before anyone says it, there’s no need for a cull or any drastic measures like that, not that there’s any lack of suitable cullees but let’s not go down that road ;) People are being born and dying constantly, slow the birth rate down so it’s less than the death rate and the population will start to reduce immediately. 2 simple measures that could be put in place to do this are stopping financial encouragements to breed (extra benefits, family credits, council housing when you have a child you can’t afford etc) and stopping immigration. Of course to accomplish either we would have to free ourselves from the shackles of the EU first, but it’s a moot point anyway. No politician would have the balls to propose such measures, because they know the gutless bleeding heart public and their opinion makers in the self-hating liberal media would just condemn them as “fascists”. In other words, we’re fucked.
