In London and the South East, the housing market and transport infrastructure are under huge strain thanks to crippling overpopulation which is being mostly driven by uncontrolled mass immigration.
Now – as our border is breached regularly and promiscuously (with government encouragement) by people traffickers making criminal profits by exploiting irregular migrants on the Continent who want to come here from safe countries – the problem is getting immeasurably worse.
This is having, and will have, a severe impact on the quality of life in the UK – as overwhelming population pressure that rears its head in London and the South East ripples out to affect the rest of the country – with an attendant effect on housing and health sectors which are already facing severe crises.
Be under no illusions – this is coming to a place near you and probably faster than you think.
Since 2000, the total UK population has risen by eight million and just surpassed a record 67 million. The total immigration-related component of this growth is about seven million when the children of migrants are included.
ONS statistics show that there was a massive churn of immigration over the past two decades, with 11.4 million overseas immigrants arriving during the period and just under seven million leaving.
Over the past twenty years, just over half of those arriving from overseas (5.9 million, or 52%) went to London, the South East and the East of England.
Meanwhile, net immigration from overseas in that period was estimated to be 4.8 million, of which nearly half (2.3 million, or 47%) went to London, the South East and the East of England.
