      Disagree, when I travel to the countryside I see a lot of space.

      I guess you could deport me as I don't do ****. Only bad thing is I only speak English and hence will be called a foreigner in my 'native' country. Jolly good.

      And I want that to remain countryside, I don't want our landscape concreted over.

      Go on Google Maps UK and click the Satellite button. Now, I'm sure you'll agree Britain looks pretty green. That's because only about 10% of the country has been built on. Hardly overcrowded, right? Now stop scaremongering.

      As an environmentalist, I believe that any net population increase at the moment is a terrible idea given how much pressure we already place on these islands. All non-EU immigration should be stopped indefinitely, although EU immigration and emigration to the EU doesn't give much of a net change per year. Remember, our environmental impact isn't limited to the urban areas themselves, and that most of the countryside is intensely, carefully managed rather than left wild. Crowding out nature will be our downfall if we're not careful.

      As for overcrowding, I think we should start to build up instead of out . . . our cities are in dire need of rebuilding anyway.

      And please don't mistake this for racism or xenophobia - I love the contributions that other cultures have made to ours, and some of my best friends are from abroad - but we need time to catch up and develop our infrastructure to deal with the current population, and to roll back some of the urban sprawl. We can't do that if the population is growing substantially.

      What about our Public Services? NHS can't cope with the demand? Schools not able to cope. We don't have enough houses, money to fund benefits, transport services are packed and cant cope with demand -- Sure there are still some fields left for the taking, but not enough money or services to provide for everyone unfortunately.

      Kick all leachers out from other countries that are claiming benefits. These will consist of mainly muslims and other middle east degenerates.

      Next sort out the eastern european leachers.

      Bingo, problem sorted.

      You're average immigrant comes to the UK, gets a job, pays his taxes and funds public services just like any other British citizen. More people, more money, more hospitals and schools.
