    Cake and Eat It

    Can you have massive population growth without massive pressures on public services like the NHS and Education. Why do we only hear of the aging population being the problem with the NHS with no mention of population growth fueled by mass immigration. Wait a minute, that would be racist to blame immigration and the effect it has on the birth rate, better to blame it all on our old people.

    It's a combination of both.

    In terms of immigration, with an average net addition of 250k people per year for the last umpteen years that is bound to impact as we are not extending schools or hospitals at the same rate. We are trying to fit a pint into a 3/4 pint pot. Not a hard one to work out.

    I'm wrong. Apparently it is very difficult to work out if you are a gov't minister in charge of education or health.

    Maybe inadequate healthcare and education is the natural defense against excess population growth

    Should couples be discouraged to have more than 2 children?

    I had the snip after we had our second child. We made a conscious decision that 2 was enough and that any more would be a financial burden that would last the rest of our lives. Were super happy with that bit of foresight.

    People are living too long these days and too many people (like me) are attracts to the uk because you have a great standard of living. Lucky me

    Good point. We need to stop fighting against obesity and bring back sexy branding to smoking, along with reducing the tax on fags. Let natural selection run its course
