28 Out Of 33 London Boroughs Suffer Population Loss

Recommended Posts

Cant be bothered posting the link to the article but its from todays Times in an article about emmigration and birth rates based on ONS data. It seems that London ( yes the city where everyone wants to live and would gladly sacrifice their life's work for a share of a studio flat ) has 'suffered' a net population loss or to be more precise 28 out of 33 London boroughs experienced a net loss of population. That being the case how can we explain that property prices were until very recently still rising - cant be down to supply and demand ? Could it be down to out of control speculators who are now sitting on hugely over priced properties that they can't rent out and now wont be able to sell to repay the loans they took out on them ?

I find that hard to believe to be honest.

I saw some news piece a few weeks ago about councils complaining that their populations are officially being underestimated which means they're not getting the correct amount of funding. Can't remember where these councils were, but from what I've read the London population is only going up.

Undeclared illegal immigrants 10 to a room.

That covers both actual population increase and apparent depopulation.

HTH <_<

Travelling into the City on the underground each morning it certainly doesn't feel like the population is falling much....

You could blame methods of counting or lack of integrity.

The overall population of London still rose by 56,000 last year; the boroughs experiencing a net loss lost relatively small amounts, the exception was newham with 10,000 followed by ealing with 5000

And you believe this ? According to the Government Slough has a drop in population but according to the water board Slough is producing 10% more sewage. The simplest explanation is that the government does not know how many people live in the UK !

Every vacant flat around where I live is now taken over by 4 - 5 EE's, houses when sold are turned into HMO's and filled with Somallians by the council and once nice family houses are turned into 3 flats, no the population in this bourough is going through the roof.

I think it was Slough council that recently used sewerage figures to prove that their population was increasing dramatically while central government was claiming thier population was dropping. So either central government was wrong or people are producing more shit per head :)

Everyone's getting fatter..

You may be right. What I have definitely noticed is that the distribution is flattening out - there are more very fat people and more very thin people. The average could easily be rising. There is a positive thing though, whilst no means universal, doederant seems to be more commonly in use than it was 10 years ago so, whilst it's also getting warmer, people don't seem to be quite as smelly.
