You mean despite Brexit?

Shouldn't we be facing sky-high prices, empty shelves, record interest rates, fiscal flights, runs on banks, stock market crashes, emergency budgets and 'the worst recession in history' by now ratehr than 'lower prices'?

The Remainers promised!

THEY PROMISED!
that might have something to do with this global pandemic that ahs caused prices to crash

dont think about it too hard though, you might need a sit down

But surely a global pandemic PLUS Brexit would have completely destroyed the UK by now?

600k immigrants a year for the last 10 years tends to put a lot of demand on housing demand and thus prices funnily enough. Most here seem to support that though.
600k per year and multiplying exponentially once here!

THAT'S the problem!

And yet the country is still overwhelmingly "white British". Also the 600k number is incorrect as a brief Google search proved to me. It's half that. Almost as if you're deliberately spreading misinformation.

The largest population increase is due to UK births. Strange how most of you ignore that and want to demonise 'others'.
And a large proportion of the increase in UK births is due to young migrants (often from countries with high birth rates) beginning families.

I wish that the census would be able to give a true picture of UK population so that we can have open and honest discussions whilst planning for reality. Alas the millions illegally in UK won't report.

The immigrants are all gone. You can stop playing that card now to distract for the terrible job Conservative economics are doing and have always done.
EU people left. There was an acceptance that they moved on once they'd accumulated the capitol.

If you were from say.. Somalia, or Bangladesh... Who in their right mind would return there once the capitol is secured? That's the sort of immigration that takes the population up. Throw in a couple of other details, like tradition and aversion to contraception, and that's a lot of new people.

No - completely wrong. I stated that domestic births are greater. No opinion on either, just a factual clarification.

Perhaps your breakfast should deserve more of your attention. Enjoy it before it becomes more expensive.
I agree with you that domestic births are greater than migration, but with the fertility rate in Britain being as low as it is, and with migration being something within our means to control,.. Why should it be so high?

Meat grinder economics.. Keep shipping in people because the GDP grows. I'm not arguing this from a Tory perspective. This is essentially a 'Lexiteer' position.

313,000 from only figures I can find for the last year. Half of what the poster is claiming. Easier to create disharmony by doubling the number though isn't it?

Why are you bringing race into it?

Immigration is not a race issue. It is a numbers and resources issue.

It is backdoor ra.
Very true, the impact of immigration is primarily a cause for concern due to numerical impact on resources and standard of living.

Most can see that and can differentiate, alas the bbc moderates out such comments which has the adverse affect of encouraging moderate / reasoned views into the underground world that leads to disgusting racism.

But you lot are strangely silent on Boris allowing blue passports to nearly 6 million Hong Kong residents which China could dump on us. The Tories have had 10 years to reduce immigration they failed to do so because out of the 600k you mentioned includes those working & studying Around 50k are the immigrants that you are racially referring to, a much lower figure Removed

when you haven't even finished vaccinating the over fifties, and you've still vaccinated half the population of England, you get a glimpse of 'why' we 'have' to keep shipping young people in....

We're an old dying people, and if I was young again there's no way I'd have kids anyway, I simply couldn't afford a decent life for them. We need MORE houses, whoever goes in them
So what is your solution, Hubble? Advising working class young British people to keep it in their pants, whilst only being able to sustain the nation' pension via very relaxed immigration policy?

As a 25 year old, childless, British man, I'm not really sure I could approve.

I fully support immigration. Immigrants are generally smarter, younger and more economically active than those who sit at home reading the Daily Fail and complaining about immigrants all day. Better for our country in the long run. Which if you knew your history? Is largely built on successive waves of immigration.

Link to the original article? Immigration is good for the economy.

Why don't the figures include the inflation of the largest expenditure item we have in our lifetime?

Houses.

Whose interest is it to milk you for as much as they can without you noticing.
I don't understand why there can't be a sensible discussion about immigration without it straying into the topic of racism. The levels of immigration into the UK have been and continue to be too high and this puts pressure on public services, resources such as water supplies and is a significant factor behind the current housing shortage. It's about the number of immigrants, not their ethnicity. Removed
At the same time, I don't deny that some people who complain about immigrartion are racist but this shouldn't be used to as a reason to ignore the negative impact of high levels of immigration or shut down a reasoned debate about a key issue. Removed

I’m just wondering at what point the BBC is going to give up on the dogmatic approach and start questioning the justification for lockdowns.
Enough of the longer, harder, faster approach eh?
