In response to The Conservative Woman: Migration Watch warns against ending target,
Population replacement is already beyond its tipping point. The already (deliberately) scanty discussion about immigration has itself been fixed by the politicians who insist instead on looking only at the size of the population overall. Thus, we are told that immigration is a nett 300,000 or so a year.
However, it is in fact the gross immigration figure that matters when one considers population replacement. If there are 600,000 immigrants in a year less 300,000 indigenous British people who leave in that same year, then yes, nett immigration would be 300,000, that’s roughly 0.5 per cent of the population of the country. That is the figure trumpeted by the politicians. Those figures would mean, though, that the non-indigenous population increases by the equivalent of about 1 per cent of the total population in that year but also that the indigenous population decreases by 0.5 per cent in the same year. This order of change has been going on already for a decade or so. The swing, the change in the balance of the population is tremendous!
Of course, even these figures do not include illegal immigration, fake ‘refugees’, ‘tourist’ overstayers who remain undetected, ‘students’ who overstay and remain undetected, family visitors who overstay and remain undetected, people who come in via the Irish Republic and who simply stay and who remain undetected, as well, perhaps, as other categories of people with no right to stay but who simply do not leave. Thus ‘official’ figures are almost certainly very gross underestimates.
Then one would need to consider the generational multiplier effect of the very large families that certain categories of immigrants usually have, the effect of family reunion provisions, the multiple wives provisions, and so on and so on.
Imo, we are far beyond the tipping point already.
