Thread Name: BS: UK immigration too high?
Subject: RE: BS: UK immigration too high?
Zero population growth would certainly aggravate the pensions timebomb.

If a magic wand could solve that, then I would really prefer a whole lot fewer people across the entire world.

But I can't see how a fortress state with zero population growth internally could hold off the rest of the world for ever.

This is not, really, a UK only problem, to the extent that it is a problem.
