UK population 'to go up 15 million'

A possible reason to relocate to Poland

The number of people living in the UK is likely to exceed 75 million by the middle of this century, a population expert said.

Oxford University professor of demography David Coleman has predicted the population will expand by at least 15 million by 2051, up from last year's figure of 60 million.

Prof Coleman, who based his calculations on an updated model for counting migration adopted by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), said even that figure was likely to be an "underestimate".

His projections are expected to be confirmed by Government population experts this week.

The ONS said last month their estimates for the number of people migrating to the UK had increased to 190,000 a year compared with 145,000 in calculations issued two years ago.

It was thought the review was mainly due to higher numbers of eastern Europeans coming to Britain since their countries joined the EU.

Prof Coleman's calculations, disclosed in a memo to the House of Lords economic affairs committee, predict the UK population will reach 69 million in 2031 and 75 million in 2051. He has also told peers that the proportion of the UK population classed as non-white was on course to grow from 9% at the last census in 2001 to 29% in 2051.

I read somewhere that there are huge numbers of south africans coming over to work here.

Re: UK population 'to go up 15 million'

I had S. African friends through my last place of work - came to England to escape the anti-white racism of the reformed Stalinist-Racists of the ANC.
It's not surprising that the ANC are a complete bunch of thieving wasters really. Communism dictates that the end (i.e. my pocket) justifies the means (i.e. your pocket).
They were lucky - Brtish nationality through grandparents.
