Britain's population will rise to 92.5million over the next century, according to official forecasts yesterday.
The country will have to find room for another 30million people by 2108, half as many as already live here.
According to the forecasts, almost all of the growth in numbers will come in England, where the strong economy in the South and the East is expected to continue to pull in immigrants.

Nice one.

This assuming that a million new Poles emigrate to the UK every few years, for its amazingly good economic prospects.

Actually that's probably to sophisticated, all they have done is draw a straight line on a graph. In 2567 the UK will have a population of one billion; better stop immigration now, becuase in only the year 2709 it will double to 2billion, by 2787 we will have a population of 3billlion and it will only take 58 years to increase the UK population by another Billion in 2845.

Complete non-sense! What's to say that pandemic disease won't obliterate the population by 80% or that 50% won't starve in the 'Great Famine of 2047'. What's to say that waves of people might not emigrate elsewhere in the world like they did to the U.S in the 19th century?

If the authors of this report can accurately predict the HPC 'bottom' then I might pay a little more heed to their report.

Far more likely that the Poles we already have will emigrate en masse in mid-2011 when they will be allowed to work in Germany.

0.4% per year.

did someone say there is a story here?

'oh no we can't possibly build 120,000 houses per year'

Indeed, much cheaper housing, better pay and working conditions and easy to come home for the weekend. I spoke to a CAP Gemini guy who intends to switch from Krakow to Germany next year. German is almost as commonly spoke as English here in Poland.

More Daily Wail rabble rousing, preaching to their bigoted, easily led middle class readership who love having their blood pressure raised.

Only last week they were making their readership froth at the mouth with a different and equally unlikely population prediction.

How can they project that in 100 years the economy in the south and east of england will be strong?

spin at it;s finest

Exactly. Also according to various studies concerning MMGW and climate change wasn't the SE of England supposed to be 2 metres under water in ~100yrs and shouldn't the East of England have eroded to nothing by then?

The Fail should be taken to court over their immigration stories ... IMHO.

They were the only paper that called the exodus from Eastern europe right...while the govt and guardian kept spinning the 30-40k figure the Mail was the only publication to mention the unmentionable and suggest it will run into the hundreds of thousands. It turns out their own predictions were optimistically low.

Wouldnt trust either ultimately, but id sooner trust the mail to report immigration than the government.
