    If every couple has four kids, that doubles their population

    3 million now, (double 1=> 6 million (double 2=> 12 million (double 3 => 24 million

    (not quite half, but my point remains)
    We have reached peak fertility rate of two. The only continent now that will continue to see growth in population is Africa, where fertility rate will remain at five. Europe will decrease to one and a half. Your concerns are irrelevant.

    The fact that there is a positive net impact suggests that the majority of immigrants contribute positively.
    Maths wasn't your strong point I take it?

    +500, -10, -10, -10, -10

    80% of the immigrants in the above scenario are net-leechers....

    Lib dem have had their day. They're going to fade into nothing

    We most certainly have NOT had our day - we will recuperate stronger, more united and ready to fight all the lost seats back! It will take time, but now being the opposition is going to work in our favour As Cleggy said, history will treat us kindly. One day our real reward, and people had better be ready

    But in the democratic society we live in, I respect your views. If i may, who did you vote for in the end? (Dont say Tories aha)

    In a debate, it is poor to insult people personally. You retort the argument, not the person. FYI I'm not poor at maths so go do one .

    Where did you get these numbers from? Idk what you're talking about.

    In Qatar (or is it Oman/the UAE - it's a gulf state any way?), and Lebanon their fertility rates are lower than the UK

    Within Africa, fertility rates are coming down too.

    Group of 100 people. One contributes £1m, the rest cost us £100.

    Net figure is positive, but 99% of them are stealing from this country.

    Get my point?
    Can you prove this?

    Hypothetical don't are useless and i'm pretty sure UCL are competent enough to publish such "situations" if they saw them, unless you claim they are left wing to...

    Again you ignored half my post:

    "Recent immigrants were 45% less likely to receive state benefits or tax credits than people native to the UK and 3% less likely to live in social housing"

    This show's they are more likely to benefit the UK than our own native citizen's, due to being 45% less likely to be dependent on the state and 3% less likely to take up social housing.

    I think the two rascals have given up now, they see that their point on the topic above is completely false.

    I watched a really interesting documentary by Hans Rosling, which outlined how world demographics will shift in the next century. If you're interested, it's called Don't Panic: The truth about population. As LEDCs move into the fourth and fifth stages of the demographic transition model and people realise that less children means they have a higher disposable income, fertility rate will decline. In Africa though, as long as Christianity dominates and this culture of many children signalling 'manliness' persists, it will happen more slowly. However, as Malthus predicted, there will be famine and war etc and this will stifle growth.

    Sorry to bang on, this interests me

    Oh my god......

    You just made the claim the fact a net figure is positive, implies the majority of the people comprising that figure are net contributers, which is total BS! I just proved it with a very simple example. Five people and their contributions:

    +500, -10, -10, -10, -10

    Net contribution is +460, yet 80% of the group don't contribute!

    So yes, I don't think your maths is very good! You also imply things which are total nonsense.

    EVERY single immigrant should be a net contributer. Why on earth should we admit immigrants who don't contribute???

    Yes you have. You claimed in one post that you hate Muslims because of whats going on around the world. Again, you still haven't answered my simple yes or no question.
