UK population 'largest in Western Europe by 2050'

Not a problem according to the growthist lobby in the Independent. We need more social workers, teachers, psychiatrists, sales reps, financial advisers, H&S inspectors, diversity managers, builders, imported food, water, fuel and other raw materials, to enable our wonderfully diverse population to go forth and multiply on a small island, itself dependent on a finite planet. Get real, fewer than 1% of the workforce are actually involved in agriculture and food processing, little more directly in building.. The rest are just bureaucrats and purveyors of bogus services.. How about paying people NOT to have children, banning IVF, scrapping all child benefits beyond two children per woman and investing in sustainable development abroad rather than inviting more low and semi-skilled to compete in our labour market.
