Population Of UK Passes 60 Million

Thursday, August 24th, 2006 at 20:17 by Simon Kimber

The Office for National Statistics announced today that there are now more than 60.2 million of us crammed on to these little British isles.

The figure is up 0.6% on the previous year and is the fastest annual increase since 1962 when the drugs and “free love” of the sixties caused babies to explode into existence like Gremlins at an all-night pool-party with a buffet.

This time however the marked rise is attributed to something that, to an average Daily Mail reader, is so evil, so heinous and so frightfully objectionable that even the afore mentioned Gremlins would pale into insignificance. Yes, that’s right. Imigrants.

With births at 717,500 and deaths at 590,600 the “Net Migration” figure of 235,000 accounts for over 64% of the overall population growth.  Housewife of High Wycombe and Chartered Accountant of Chorley can hardly write their letters fast enough.
