There are now 61 million people living in the United Kingdom. The UK population grew by 408,000 in 2008 - the biggest increase for almost 50 years, according to the Office for National Statistics.
What's interesting is that the major population growth factor is not now immigration itself but rather immigrants breeding. We have moved onto the inevitable second phase of immigration: immigrants are attracted by a free health service and free education for their children and naturally start a family pretty much immediately they arrive. This puts enormous pressure on public services, transport, housing and even food supplies - we import an ever increasing proportion of the food we eat.
Once they have children only a tiny proportion of these immigrants will ever pay enough tax to pay for the services they consume; they are almost all economically parasitic off the existing native population.
And let us not forget we already have 6 million people of working age out of work and claiming benefits. Scroll down a bit for the details. When an immigrant gets a job that's another British person on the dole at the taxpayers' expense.
