The population of the United Kingdom could soar to 90 million by the middle of the century, government statisticians will say this week.
Such an increase, driven by immigration and a rising birthrate, would add 50 per cent to today's population.
It would be the equivalent of building a new city the size of Sheffield every year and would put extreme pressure on housing, transport and public services.
The highest birthrate in the UK is among Pakistani-born women, who have an average of 4.7 children each. Last year, 22 per cent of births in the UK were to foreign-born women.
Also a small point at the bottom casts fears over education: Britain's schools are being pushed to breaking point by the rising tide of immigrant pupils, according to the National Association of Headteachers.
It said that many schools could not cope with the influx, which threatens to change the culture of some schools.
Since the EU expanded in 2004, about 170,000 children from Poland, 30,400 from Lithuania, 28,700 from Slovakia and 12,900 from the Czech Republic have joined classes in British schools.
Time continue sticking our heads in the sand to stay "PC" and keep the liberals and immigrants in our country happy? or is it time to do something about the threat of immigration to the UK. Ok i'm not going to try to say "you should all join the BNP and agree with me that multi-culturalism doesn't work" but at least try to get the likes of the tories and Labour to give us some concrete plans to stop immigration in such numbers. Some fake proposals to keep the British people happy is not good enough at the moment, and strict measures need to be in place. Lets discuss this and not take it to a "is the BNP evil or not" thanks.
