UK Population Growth Out Of Control


Published Jun 30, 2017

The OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) reported that almost 1 in 10 of the UK population is born overseas.

This is being driven by record levels of immigration, most of it from outside the EU, which government is supposed to have control of. From 1975, when the UK voted to remain in the EEC (European Economic Community) to 1997 (when the Labour party came to power) the UK experienced balanced migration. However, once Labour opened the floodgates gross non EU and EU immigration soared by almost 9 million (that's nine cities the size of Birmingham). Net immigration over the last 20 years has been 3.8 million from outside the EU and 1.4 million from the EU (that's over five cities the size of Birmingham).

The population, on a decadal basis is growing at 400% more than it did in the '70's.

John Bickley, UKIP's Immigration Spokesman said, "With the recent figures about the population growing at almost 500,000 a year (a city the size of Manchester), almost 1 in 10 people living in the UK being born overseas, net immigration from the EU & non EU countries reaching over 5 million since Labour came to power in 1997 (that's five cities the size of Birmingham) and the overall population growing at 400% more per decade than it did in the '70's is it any wonder there is such massive pressure on housing, hospital beds, GP appointments and school places.

Nevermind that the cultural makeup of this country is being altered without any consultation or approval of the indigenous population, and uncontrolled low skilled immigration is depressing wages and depriving Brits of jobs, these changes to our population are unsustainable and have the potential to lead to unpleasant outcomes.

And yet we hear that Theresa May and the Tories will continue to allow uncontrolled immigration from the EU and crazily to allow EU citizens living here the right to bring in their dependents. Whether any of them work or not won't matter, they'll be given unfettered access to public services and benefits, including benefits for dependents who don't live in the UK. This is unacceptable and the sign of a government who couldn't negotiate their way out of a paper bag!

It's now clear that the political class have decided to ignore last year's referendum result and have no intention of getting to grips with the main issue, immigration, that drove a large percentage of the 17.4 million voters to vote Leave. At this rate of betrayal the need for UKIP to rescue the country from the clutches of the dishonorable Westminster elite will grow by the day".
