It could be worse. We could have had Pakistanis, Syrians, Africans, etc "crawling" into Britain!

I thought the majority of Poles were returning home...?

As it says towards the bottom of that article...

"There are signs that immigration in this country is starting to tail off. If you were to do this again in 2010 or 2011 I think it would be different."

Its not the number of people thats the problem its the proportion of them that are elderly. We'll always need more young people, whatever nationality.

When I'm retired and the NHS needs to be paid for I aint gonna give a sh1t if its paid for with the taxes of English. Polish or whatever. The fact is someone needs to pay for it.

A Home Office spokesman said: "Projections such as these are proof that we are right to be carrying out the biggest shake-up to the immigration system for a generation.

"Centre-stage is our new Australian-style points-based system, which means only those we need can come here to work or study."


Too Little, too late.

Shadow home secretary Dominic Grieve said the figures showed it was "essential we develop a coherent strategy to deal with population growth".

By doing what exactly ? Building an extension and make the country a bit bigger ?

They need to stop so many people from coming in and being much more fussy about the sorts of people who do come here.

"Never a truer word spoken in jest!"

By that I mean, the only way that the UK will solve its population problem is to go upwards and build huge great high-rise flats.

I already live in a road of what were large victorian family houses, which are now mainly flats. There is no room left to build sideways, so I see blocks of flats gradually getting taller.
