The ONS latest revision to it’s population forecasts, that looks set to see England’s population explode higher by 4.1 million by 2024. Which in my opinion still greatly under estimates what is actually transpiring as a consequences of out of control immigration that sees total annual migration of between 800k and 1 million, and official net migration of 333k. Though other measures such as National Insurance suggest actual net migration is far higher, near double the official rate at 500k.
Firstly the headline ONS figure masks huge regional variations so that the impact of population growth ranges from mild to crisis levels in terms of the impact on communities as services such as health, housing, and schools are already at breaking point even before another 4.1 million is added to the populous.
