    It's official: England is the most crowded country in Europe

    England is poised to become the most crowded nation in Europe, according to official figures.

    The number of people crammed into each square mile is due to overtake levels in Holland and Belgium - and may already have done so.


    Large-scale immigration is pushing up demand in the South of England for more homes, more transport and more services.

    The math in the article sounds a little off;
    "They show that in England in 2005 there were 387 people for every square kilometre, and this rose to 390 per square kilometre in 2006. This is around 620 per square mile."

    According to my math, 390 persons per square kilometre = 1010 persons per square mile (2.591 square kilometres = 1 square mile). I think 620 is the number of persons per square mile for the United Kingdom.

    PS: On Renwein advise I took advatage of the comment function (at the Daily Mail) to point out their mathematical error. More then 1,000 persons per square mile is much more shocking psychologically then 620.

    Well... it isn't news to most of us, but it's always nice to see the press identifying the problem. Also great to see so many people agree that the goverment are mad, even though it is to be somewhat expected from Daily Mail readers.

    England to be most overcrowded EU nation

    dtelegraph 04/01/2008

    England is about to become the most crowded major country in Europe, official figures show.

    It is ready to overtake Holland, leaving only the tiny island of Malta with a higher population density.

    There are concerns that overcrowding will affect quality of life (!)


    About 70 per cent of the recent population growth in England resulted from immigration and much of the rest was down to higher birth rates among immigrants.

    The Conservatives accused ministers of ignoring the dangers of increasing population density. Pressure on housing, transport and other services has reached unprecedented levels, especially in the South.

    There were 390 people for every square kilometre in England in 2006, up from 387 the previous year, the figures from the Office for National Statistics showed.

    That number is predicted to reach 464 people per square kilometre by 2031 if trends continue...........

    The population density is already almost double the level in Germany and quadruple that in France. In 2005 Holland had 393 people per square kilometre, but lower immigration levels there mean England may already have overtaken it.

    The Tory MP James Clappison, secured the release of the figures in a written Commons answer. He said: "It shows that England, if not the most crowded already, will very soon be so.
    "This is more evidence of the impact of immigration and if present patterns of migration continue we are going to get much more crowded. There will be a big impact on quality of life."

    The figures will also lead to heightened concern over Labour's intention to build hundreds of thousands of homes in southern England, amid fears that protected green belt land will be exploited.

    About 1.3 million immigrants have arrived in the past decade and ministers say the record levels are required because the British economy has 600,000 job vacancies. But the think tank MigrationWatch has said that immigration tends to lead to reduced wages.

    At present, there are 3.5 million Britons claiming jobseekers' allowance or incapacity benefit. The think tank said a culture of benefits dependency among workers was developing with "little financial incentive for people with families living on benefits to find employment".

    It cited the example of a family where one parent earns the minimum wage. It said they would be between £14 and £24 a week better off if they did not work and received maximum incapacity benefit.

    Sir Andrew Green, the chairman of MigrationWatch, said: "We keep hearing that we need immigrants to do the jobs that the British won't do. It has been suspected for some time that benefit levels are a real disincentive to work and our research spells out why this may be so............."
