I like the news recently.
Obviously the sovereign supports sovereignty.
The nose knows.
This one’s to you, your Majesty.
She never lets me down.
Bess is bae.
A Pro-American President is meant to be a shock?
A patriotic national leader, the horror!
Next, he’ll be putting Americans before the globalist (capitalist) dream!
Like, people > money! What a monster!
Seriously, I’ll say the same about him as I said about Obama. As long as he’s a good President, I don’t care who he is.
2007 article, so probably much higher by now
It is the statistic that dare not speak its name, though eventually it must. It has huge ramifications for the civil and political life of this country, the health of the equity markets and, most immediately, the residential property market. So don’t forget you read it here first: the population of the UK is presently somewhere between 77 and 80 million.
That faint background noise you’re hearing as you read this is the sound of everyone slithering off the record. Why? In political terms, standing behind these figures would be to toss a hand grenade into a vat of gasoline. People would be hounded out of a job for scaremongering.
If the true numbers were revealed, the Little Englanders and xenophobes would come out in force about the evils of immigration. But that’s what made America great in the 19th century, and it’s a driving force of our economy right now. It’s also anti-inflationary.
And when I say “anti-inflationary”, I mean they are getting rotten wages. Dignified by the term “cheap labour”, the hidden hordes will do well for the services sector, among others. People are assets – to maintain and to be maintained – so we are wealthier as a nation.
Only good for the middle class. It deflates the working wages of the poor.
He said that immigration does not have a particularly bad or good impact on the economy, but that people’s objections relate to pressure on public services.
He said: “One argument said we’re a small island, not much room. On the other hand, of course, there’s masses of room. The urbanised part of Britain occupies less than 10% of the surface area. The urbanised part of Surrey occupies less of Surrey than golf courses.
“Since more immigrants mean more housing, more roads, more airports, more incinerators, more of this being required, and since the evidence would suggest that people by and large don’t like these things, especially if they are near them, that’s the key issue about immigration that people may wish to face up to.
Except the people of Surrey own that land, not the people who just turned up and expected freebies.
The Queen is the biggest landowner in the country, when is she selling up?
